"Statnamic, the engineering of art"
Authors: P. Middendorp, Profound, The Netherlands

Published in:

Sixth International Conference on the Application of Stress-Wave Theory To Piles, Orlando, Sao Paulo, 2000
Abstract: In present standard engineering practice there seems to be a big gap between engineering and art. It is the experience of the author that engineering and art can exist as an excellent combination. This will be illustrated by examples from history and the author’s personal experience. One example will be treated extensively: the continuous development of the Statnamic load testing method as a marvelous combination of engineering and art. The start of the Statnamic concept is described as an interaction between an artist and engineers together with developments on the theoretical approaches and technical applications. Further the present Statnamic state of the art will be discussed briefly.
