Shalva Marjanishvili

Sr. Managing Engineer & Technical Director

Shalva Marjanishvili leads Hinman’s Advanced Structural Analysis practice, and is an expert in the dynamic non-linear response of structures to the effects of seismic, impact and explosive loadings. Marjanishvili uses a broad range of computational methods to develop computer models tailored for specific projects as well as modeling buildings using off-the-shelf programs such as SAP2000 Nonlinear. He uses these analytical methods to evaluate the detailed design requirements for both new and existing buildings and for progressive collapse analysis.

Marjanishvili has published 18 technical papers including “Progressive Analysis Procedure for Progressive Collapse”, in the ASCE Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities.

Shalva Marjanishvili received his BS and PhD in Structural Engineering from the Georgian Technical University, and an MS in Structural Engineering from Stanford University. He is a registered Structural Engineer in California.
