Zeevaert has been invited to deliver lectures and courses on Soil Mechanics and Earthquake Engineering in several universities of the U. In addition, he recorded for the first time in the history of Mexico City the earthquakes of May 11 and 19,from which the response spectra of the subsoil at the downtown area of the city could be defined; these data have been used in the preparation of the building code for seismic design of the Federal District. La Sociedad, con el Dr.

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 consulting engineer in the design of the steel structure, where the concept of controlled flexibility was applied for the first time Since he has devoted time to study the problems of earthquakes and their interaction with the foundation and for this purpose he designed two decades ago the “free vibrating torsion pendulum” with which it is possible to determine the dynamical properties of the soil and to forecast the behavior of the subsoil and of the structures and vibrating equipment.

He developed and designed the foundation for the building mentioned above, and acted as consulting engineer in the design of the steel structure where the concept of controlled flexibility was applied for the first time, studding its behavior from a dinamics point of view 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 leonwrdo the interior harbor.


In this building he applied a method he introduced to find out the resonance periods of the soil, which was also applied in the headquarters building for Aseguradora Anahuac in Mexico City Zeevaert fue comisionar al M. La personalidad del Dr. Up to date he is recipient of over 80 diplomas and Medals and Prizes of recognition for his work of professor and professional practice, and has been involved in over various proyects in Civil Engineering in Mexico and abroad.

Este libro sirve de texto a los alumnos del posgrado y de libro de consulta en el nivel internacional; zeevert libro ha sido traducido al chino y al polaco.

In he collaborated with Prof. He was also active in the field of Coastal Engineering studying wave action on the coastline and hydraulics of marginal lagoons. At present he is a member of the following societies: Zeevaert has also performed studies for the expansion and construction of factories and heavy industries, silos, steel mills and paper mills, as well as subsoil studies for urban developments and studies on earthquake engineering in Central America, Southamerica and West Indies.

Terzaghi y el Dr. Al entonces ingeniero Zeevaert le entusiasmaba la forma en la que el Prof. In he was honored by the American Institute of Architects who bestowed upon him the gold medal “Allied Professions Medal”; he has also received many other professional honors 85 at both international and local levels which are too many to mention; among them he is an honorary member of the Belgium Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences and of the National Academy of Engineering of the United States of America.

A cargo del Dr. The experience gained by Dr.

El sentimiento que esto le produjo en principio, fue de rechazo a la tarea zeevaret, al sentirse humillado; sin embargo, grande fue su sorpresa cuando el propio Prof. He was born in the city port of Veracruz, Mexico on November 27,he completed his undergraduate studies inhaving received the degree of Civil Engineer from the National University of Mexico in leonrdo Para mi fortuna el Dr.


Zeevaert in establishing the “Leonardo Zeevaert Conference”, tha will take place every two years during. Es importante resaltar que el Dr. Table of Contents Dr. Leonardo Zeevaert, given his name to the future International Cycle of conferences.

Leonardo Zeevaert Wiechers — Dr. He developed a method to find out the resonance zewvaert of the subsoil to be introduced in the design of tall buildings subjected to seismic forces. He developed a new procedure for the construction of buildings, eliminating columns in the facade to provide more architectural flexibility in the ground floor of such constructions. He has participated in river navegation studies and seeding of works at the mouth of the Grijalva River and at other ports, including zeeavert action on the coastline and hydraulics at marginal lagoons.

Dr. Leonardo Zeevaert Wiechers ()

In the field of Coastal Engineering, he recently designed the harbor and marina for small boats at Las Hadas Hotel in Manzanillo, Colima; he has acted as consultant for this tourist development.

He has acted as consulting engineer for several private companies, the Mexican Government and abroad. He was invited in to supply information on the advances of Civil Engineering which was buried in the Time Capsule during the World Fair of New York. Fue durante su trabajo con el Prof.
