goldack-sombra2 Tuesday 29th of October 2013 Arndt Goldack Lecture: Dynamic Lightweight Structures @ 19.30, IAAC Auditorium Open to the Public Dr.-Ing. Arndt Goldack  was born in 1969 in Stuttgart, Germany. In 1996 he graduated in civil and structural engineering at the University of Stuttgart, and in 2004 Awarded Doctorate (Dr.-Ing.), Thesis “Structural behavior and Bracing of High Rise Tubes for Solar Updraft Towers”. From 1996 to 2003 he was a Research assistant at the Institute for Structural Design with Prof. Jörg Schlaich and Prof. Werner Sobek, University of Stuttgart. In 2003 he then commenced as Structural Engineer with schlaich bergermann und partner, Berlin, Stuttgart, until 2011. During this time he contributed to projects in China, Germany, India, Spain, USA: – Stress ribbon bridge “Slinky springs to fame”, Oberhausen – Membrane roof for Estadio Madrid La Peineta – Gänsebachtal Bridge: Integral Bridge for High Speed Trains, length 1001m – Cable Stayed Bridge crossing Yamuna River in New Delhi, India: span 250m – Independent Review of the Second Vivekananda Bridge in Kolkata, extradosed bridge – Lufthansa A380 Service Hall in Frankfurt – Dynamic design of almost all footbridges by sbp – Research Project: Design of Lightweight Footbridges for Human Induced Vibrations, Goldack et. al., JRC-ECCS 2009 in cooperation with University of Porto, TU Delft and RWTH Aachen. Since July 2011 he has been a Researcher at the Chair of Conceptual and Structural Design, TU Berlin, studying the dynamics of bridges, pedestrian induced vibration, experimental modal analysis, lightweight structures, lightweight concrete, structural control.
