Oral History Series Vol. 11 Joseph Penzien

Robert Reitherman and Stanley Scott, Interviewers. The 11th volume in the oral history series explores the remarkable life of the distinguished structural engineer Joseph Penzien. During his 35-year academic career (1953-1988) at the University of California at Berkeley (UCB), he was instrumental in developing the teaching program in structural dynamics and earthquake engineering that many considered the best in the world. He contributed significantly to many aspects of earthquake engineering, from characterization of ground motion; inelastic response of buildings; soil-structure interaction; stochastic response of structures; and earthquake engineering for tunnels, offshore oil-drilling platforms, and bridges.

The intent of the EERI oral history project is to publish a series of interviews with prominent figures in the field of earthquake engineering to preserve some of the rich history of those who have pioneered in shaping seismic design theory and practice.
