As the name suggests, forensic engineering is application of engineering principles to investigate performance problem and structure failure, find the causes that resulted in the failure and provide guidelines for conducting investigation. Forensic engineering companies send in forensic structural engineer to evaluate whether the structural failure was caused due to faulty parts, normal wear and tear or mal-intention. Forensic engineers conduct multiple tests to re-enact events and recreate the failure as part of examining every aspect of the accident and generate comprehensive report that is admissible in for insurance claims.
Forensic engineering firms take up cases where investigation is needed to understand why a built component or system failed. These may be issues of the building itself or the property surrounding it. We have a team of forensic structural engineers and civil engineers who will investigate causes such as roof damage due to heavy snowfall or wall collapse due to heavy rain or a collapsed tree or electric circuit damage due to tornados or cyclones. They will check the reasons why the damage occurred –
Couldn’t the roof bear the weight of the snow?
