  • 3 - Newsletter EnginSoft Year 11 n2 Flash

    LASHI am pleased to welcome you to our second Newsletter of 2014. I am sure that you will agree with me that its rich variety of articles provides interesting material for any engineer and has prompted in my mind some reflections on the phrase genius.I recently had the pleasure of standing once again before Florences famous cathedral, and observing its magnificent cupola, designed and implemented at the dawn of the renaissance. If you are not aware of this awe-inspiring structure, it remains the largest masonry dome ever built over 41 meters in diameter, of octagonal plan with a soaring elegance rising to 115 meters above pavement level. The creation of this masterpiece can truly be described as a work of genius its design was revolutionary, it was self-supporting throughout its construction (requiring no centring), ingeniously contained its lateral stresses to obviate the need for buttressing, and required many innovations in building equipment and techniques.All these solutions appear to have been derived in the mind of one man, its principal architect Brunelleschi, and are all the more noteworthy because they were largely unprecedented. Knowing a little of its technical background greatly enhances its aesthetic appeal, and we can easily applaud it as the work of an extraordinary engineer, craftsman and artist working at a pivotal point in European history.However, despite the appreciation we can have such a product of individual genius, in many ways it is alien to the practise of engineering that we see exemplified in the articles of our Newsletter. Here, over and above the diversity of topics, we note as well the diversity of participants these capabilities arise from multidisciplinary teams, typically from several organisations, bringing their expertise together in innovative ways.This is well-illustrated by the example of SAIPEM, a company with which we have a long history of partnership in several disciplines and across different sites. In recent times, for example, our engineers have collaborated to develop an innovative means of towing and laying marine pipelines in shallow water, and this month you can read about our partnership in the design of two effluent piping systems for use in Ammonia Plants. I am proud of EnginSofts ability to integrate our skills with those of Saipem to produce novel solutions and inspired once again by the many other stories of collaborative creativity described in our Newsletter.The methods are elegant, and use the high intellectual capital of EnginSoft or our partners; but if they can be described as genius then it is not the individual and solitary act of creation that we celebrate, but the ability of networks within and between organisations to deliver creativity from fruitful cooperation.

    Stefano Odorizzi, Editor in chief
