Prof. Wilfried B. Kraetzig passed away
Dear Colleagues of EURODYN Scientific Community:
the very sad news has reached us in the past week: Wilfried Kraetzig died last March 7th. Despite the sudden and severe desease which affected him at beginning of October 2016, his death is a shock for many of us who knew him and admired him for more than 30 years.
Wilfried B. Kraetzig was Full Professor of Statics and Dynamics of Structures, at Ruhr-Univ. Bochum (1970/1998), Visiting Professor at University of California, Berkeley (1978), at University of Florence, Florence (1990 and '91), at Chuang-Yuan Christian University, Chung-Li (China) and in other prestigious academic institutions.
We will not mention here his many merits, his qualities, his scientific output and projects, his scientific and professional activities. What we would like to remind here is that he was a founding member of the EURODYN conference series serving as Chair of the first Edition in Bochum in 1990. From then Wilfried Kraetzig has been at first President and then honorary President of the European Association of Structural Dynamics.
The scientific community in general and in particular our community will feel this great loss, and express our gratitude for his example and his guidance.
