Forensic engineering is an investigation into the root causes of the failure of materials, components, and end products. Failures can mean breaking, cracking, or failing to perform as intended. This type of analysis is usually complex and requires multiple steps to develop meaningful analytical protocols to provide reliable data sets that can be used for decision-making purposes. Forensic engineering also requires expertise and experience with litigated matters or situations that will likely become litigated in the foreseeable future.
Our experts have as much as three decades of experience in forensic engineering, failure analysis, and the critical in-depth materials science foundation to conduct detailed, thorough, and relevant forensic engineering investigations. Our staff of chemists and materials engineers includes expertise with polymers, metals, and glass. This comprehensive approach allows for the most thorough investigations and analysis.
