Forensic Engineering

Getting to the root cause of a failure or malfunction is the first step in mitigating the potential liability and losses and finding a resolution.

With the application of scientific knowledge and methods we will attempt to determine the root cause of the failure or malfunction.

Parts and components fail for many reasons including  poor design, non-conformance to the design specifications, poor machining or fabrication methods, poor welding, defective material, environmental factors, corrosion, improper use, wear, improper or no lubrication, localized chemical reactions, unanticipated loads, overloading, etc.

We take a holistic approach, looking at the system as well as the details. Focusing on the failed component can lead to the wrong conclusion.

We have 30 plus years of product and manufacturing experience at vertically integrated companies to draw from.
