Anton D. Raath

Anton D. Raath, PrEng, PhD – Managing Director

Dr Anton Raath was associate Professor and head of the Structural Mechanics laboratories at the University of Pretoria where he led a team of 25 colleagues in research, development and consulting. He looks back on 30 years of hands-on experience in the field of structural integrity assessment ranging from finite element and fatigue analysis to development of service load simulation testing technologies using parametric dynamic system identification. His PhD entitled "Structural-dynamic reconstruction in the time domain" formed the basis for our time domain simulation package QanTiM®. Over the past 15 years he has been in Europe, first as Technical Director to Kelsey Instruments, and subsequently leading development teams for the Zwick/Roell group. Anton was a founding member of CaTs³ Ltd.
