Oral History Series Vol. 12 Park & Paulay

Robert Reitherman, Interviewer. This 12th volume in the oral history series consists of interviews with two leaders and innovators in the field of earthquake engineering, Robert Park and Thomas Paulay, who spent their careers in the Civil Engineering Department at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. The 1975 book they co-authored, Reinforced Concrete Structures, and Paulay’s 1992 volume co-authored with their colleague, Nigel Priestley, entitled Seismic Design of Reinforced Concrete and Masonry Buildings, have inspired and guided engineers all over the world seeking to improve the resilience of their communities to the power of earthquakes. Reinforced Concrete Structures put forward a simple, elegant, and comprehensive philosophy that continues to influence international seismic design. Their close contacts with engineering practitioners enabled the quick acceptance of their ideas. Park’s research in precast concrete helped make it the dominant structural material for buildings in New Zealand. The oral history’s final chapter is a conversation in which both Park and Paulay participated. February 2006, 198 pp.
