Andreas Harling
Andreas Harling, Ph.D., Dipl.-Ing.
Principal Engineer & Office Director
Industrial Structures
Düsseldorf (Germany)

Dr. Harling specializes in structural engineering with an emphasis on failure investigations and maintenance activities (inspection, acceptance) of towers. His experience includes investigations related to the flaws and failures of a variety of concrete towers (large TV-towers / radio towers), prestressed centrifugally concrete masts, and steel masts (lattice and tube). He is also an expert in the area of special requirements of the extension of existing tower structures (chimneys, wind power stations) with antennas.

His background is basing on numerous static calculations, design reviews and assessment of structural behavior of tower structures using nonlinear static and dynamic analysis techniques. Mr. Harling has done his doctorate about “Design of centrifugally concrete masts – Close to reality limitation of cracking and deformation” at the University of Dortmund, Germany. He is also a state-registered expert for antenna carrier structures (public appointed and sworn by the “Ingenieurkammer Bau NRW,” March 2009).
