Past Professor

Nathan M. Newmark

CAS Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering

Nathan M. Newmark developed simple, yet powerful and widely used methods for analyzing complex structural components and assemblies under a variety of conditions of loading and for calculating the stresses and deformations in soil beneath foundations. He contributed significantly to a better understanding of the behavior of structural materials under various environments including fatigue and brittle fracture. He added materially to knowledge of the behavior and design of highway bridge decks and floor slabs in buildings and structures subjected to impact, periodic excitation, wave action, wind, blast and earthquakes.
