ASCE Press: Karl Terzaghi : The Engineer As Artist by Richard E. Goodman (1999, Paperback)

His lifelong application of the principles established in his work took him throughout the world to engineering challenges in Communist Russia, Nazi Germany, America, and the entire post-war world. Terzathi fame as a master engineer is well known but the story of his development, both personal and professional, has remained kagl by most people. This first full-length, critical biography of a complex man draws upon his publications, hundreds of unpublished reports, thousands of private letters, and 82 volumes of previously private personal diaries.

This narrative shows Terzaghi’s struggle to understand the phenomena observed on many major engineering projects. Through his own words we explore friendships, conflicts, jealousies, frustrations, and enormous successes. Terzaghi was an artist ae constant focus, commitment, and genius. The exploration of his life, much of it amid the backdrop of turbulent Europe between the Wars, becomes an adventure that unfolds to entertain, educate, and stimulate.
