We are sad to share the news of the recent passing of one of our firm partners, R. Barry Whiteaker. Barry joined ESI Engineering in 1975 when it was in its infancy, working as a consulting engineer for over 40 years. He helped guide the firm during that time and acted as president for 10 years. His work in structural dynamics, particularly in developing the use of computer software for structural analysis and later in vibration analysis, were some of his proudest professional achievements. Throughout his career, Barry was always willing and eager to share his knowledge with others in the firm and with industry colleagues. We will honor his legacy by continuing to maintain a gold standard for structural analysis and vibration engineering.
