Obligation of the Engineer Example Obligation of the Engineer Example LeMessurier’s Citicorp  design was innovative in  several ways.  One, not visible from the  outside, was the inclusion  of a large mass, floating  on a sheet of oil, within  the triangular roof  structure. It was added as  a damper to reduce or  damp out any oscillations  the building might  undergo due to wind  forces.
