Prof. ATHOL CARR

Athol J. Carr graduated from the University of Canterbury with a Bachelor in Engineering (First Class Honours) (Civil) in May 1964. After working as a design engineer in New Zealand he went to the University of California, Berkeley, and completed a Master of Science in Engineering (in Structural Engineering) in May 1966 and a Doctor of Philosophy (in Structural Engineering) in May 1967. Both degrees were under the supervision of Professor Ray W. Clough. Dr. Carr joined the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Canterbury in January 1968. Here he has pursued research and teaching interests in structural engineering, with an emphasis on computer based methods of analysis, structural dynamics and in finite element analyses. Since the early 1970s he has been actively involved in earthquake engineering, non-linear dynamic analyses and in software engineering. Further information can be found here.
