Starossek Engineering is an engineering consultancy operating from Hamburg, Germany. We design bridges, buildings, and engineering structures. In addition, we offer special services like checking engineering, wind and structural dynamics engineering, vulnerability assessment and forensic engineering. This includes designing custom-made measures against hazards like structural vibrations and progressive collapse.
Throughout his engineering career of 30 years, Uwe Starossek endeavored to combine practice with research, an approach that paid off whenever a task never performed before was at hand or a problem hitherto unknown arose. He is the author of many scientific papers and of two books on wind-induced vibrations and progressive collapse. At the same time, he is a practicing engineer responsible for or contributing to the design of numerous structures, most large, some iconic.
