Leonardo Zeevaert Wiechers His life and achievements Prof. Leonard Zeevaert passed away in Mexico City on February 16th, zeevvaert One of the most important projects in which he had a leading participation was the Latinoamericana Tower, a stories high building for which he performed Soil Mechanics studies, designing the foundation and acting as zeevaertt engineer in the design of the steel structure, where the concept of controlled flexibility was applied for the first time II, Part 4, pp.

Zeevaert at his office, ca. He designed harbors and marinas for small boats for various sites in the Mexican Republic. He was also active in the field of Coastal Engineering studying wave action on the coastline and hydraulics of marginal lagoons.



La personalidad del Dr. Among these, the most important correspond to the analysis and design of a high tonnage harbor for Acapulco at the Tres Palos Lagoon, where interesting studies were made on littoral drift currents and ware action for the design of the inlet channel and the interior harbor. Subsequently he was engaged as consulting engineer and inspector for the construction of the foundation and of the steel structure. This prize was the first one awarded to the tallest building outside the U.

Leonardo Zeevaert (Author of Foundation Engineering for Difficult Subsoil Conditions)

Zeevaert corresponds to research carried out with the purpose of determining the solution and the most appropriate methods of calculation for different particular foundation problems and to find out the seismic behavior of foundation problems and to find out the seismic behavior of foundations and structures.

He has been professor of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering at the School of Engineering of the National University of Mexico sinceas well as lecturer on the same subject and on Structural, Architectural and Earthquake Engineering. In this particular building he performed Soil Mechanics zeevert intended for the design of the foundation and he also investigated the source of the regional subsidence occurring in Mexico City. The American Institute for Steel Construction honored him with a special prize for the good behavior of the Latinoamericana Tower during the strong earthquake of in Mexico City.

La influencia que el Prof. The international geotechnical engineering community is deeply saddened that Dr. At present he is a member of the following societies: He has been appointed as official delegate to international congresses and has presented contributions in different forums.
