Seismic expert joins DEA
Seismic specialist Frieder Seible has joined US consultant David Evans & Associates after his company Structural Design & Analysis merged with DEA at the beginning of the year. SDA specialises in seismic design and retrofit of bridges all over the world, and is led by Seible, who is also professor of structural engineering at the University of California, San Diego where he directs the Charles Lee Powell Structural Research Laboratories. Seible will continue his primary research and teaching activities at the university, and will provide design services through DEA's California bridge centre. This Sacramento office was set up late last year and is led by Steve Thoman. DEA also has bridge design centres in Salem, Oregon and Denver, Colorado.
