Description

What happens when a structure fails? We ask questions, we learn from the experience and we put new ideas in to practice to ensure that it does not happen again. This is Forensic Engineering, the process of investigating structural failures to understand why they occur and provide critical feedback to the engineering profession. It is the backbone of all engineering. In the case of partial or total structural collapse, knowledge of the cause provides a sound bases for accurate and efficient solution development.

This is Forensic Engineering - the process of investigating structural failures to understand why they occur and provide critical feedback to the engineering profession. It is the backbone of all engineering. In the case of partial or total structural collapse, knowledge of the cause can prevent future collapses, while with less catastrophic failures – such as excessive deflection, leaking facades, or indeed any situation where a lack of performance occurs – knowledge of the cause provides a sound bases for accurate and efficient solution development.
