Richard Chesney Elstner -   An authority in "investigative engineering" and a motivating force in the  classroom, Richard Chesney Elstner dealt in concrete and glass and helped build  a business empire from coast to coast.  After a nearly 4-year battle with prostate cancer, the 72-year-old troubleshooter  died Sept. 15 at his Honolulu home.  A structural doctor of sorts, Elstner quelled rumors that a side of Kahala Mall  was settling, recalled Narendra Saxena, Engineering Department chair at the  University of Hawaii, where Elstner taught for more than a decade before  retiring. Students in Elstner's construction materials class remembered him and the  classrooms still bear his mark. Student projects he oversaw adorn showcases, Saxena said.  "They (students) enjoyed his classes and have told me repeatedly how good he  was," he said.   Born in Beaver, Penn., Elstner grew up to become the authority on diagnosing   structures that showed signs of undue wear or were believed to be unsafe.  "He was in the field of troubleshooting," said Duane Lee, Honolulu branch  manager of Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc. "He   tested more buildings all over the world than anyone else in the U.S. In our  opinion he's an engineer of engineers."  Elstner co-founded the first office of the consulting business in Illinois, specializing in solving problems for the construction industry. The business now  has offices in every major U.S. city, Lee said.  "He treated his work like a hobby," Lee said. "He touched everyone he came in  contact with."  Among other honors, Elstner was selected as an honorary member of the  American Society of Civil Engineers and the Cement and Concrete Products  Industry of Hawaii. In 1994 he was named "Engineer of the Year" by the Hawaii  Society of Professional Engineers.  He is survived by wife, Elizabeth Ann; sons Richard Graham, Dwight Smith and  Charles William; and grandson Connor Benjamin. A memorial service is  scheduled for Wednesday at 5 p.m. at Central Union Church. In lieu of flowers,  donations may be made in his name to the charity of your choice.    [SB 20/09/1996]
