Preface of International Colloquium Stability and Ductility of Steel Structures V1pdf
The author, who during the period 1977 – 2002 was linked with the preparation of five international stability colloquia, gives some brief information about all of them. He starts with the first one, organised jointly by Prof. Otto Halász and himself in 1977 and held at Balatonfured; and then briefly reports about four subsequent colloquia, prepared jointly with Prof. Miklos Iványi and held in Tihányi and Budapest in 1986, 1990, 1995 and 2002.. For each of them he presents historical background, some technical information and personal reminiscences.
The author is grateful to Profs Eduardo Batista and Pedro Vellasco, the main organisers of the Rio de Janeiro International Colloquium „ Stability and Ductility of Steel Structures“ for enabling him to write a few sentences in regard to the history of the preceding five international stability colloquia held in Central Europe. It was a privilege and pleasure for the author of this short contribution to be linked with the preparation of all of them.
