Liviu Crainic is Professor of Reinforced Concrete Structures at the Technical University of Civil Engineering Bucharest-Romania. He has authored several books on structural dynamics and (reinforced) concrete and is the author of several papers published in professional journals and of numerous reports presented to professional meetings. In addition to his academic experience, his non-academic experience includes structural design work with direct contribution to the design of numerous reinforced concrete structures (multistory buildings, industrial buildings, water towers, tanks, silos) and to assessment and the redesigning of earthquake-damaged reinforced concrete structures.
Mihai Munteanu is Associate Professor of Reinforced Concrete Structures Department at the Technical University of Civil Engineering Bucharest-Romania. He has a strong background in structural design, and has amassed more than 25 years of experience in the field of Structural Design Projects, Certified Checking and Technical Expert Review, in creating computer programs for the structural analysis of reinforced concrete sections and parts of structures. Last but not least, he has more than 25 years’ experience educating and counseling new generations of structural engineers.
