Failure Analysis & Forensic Investigation
Our failure and forensic investigation services follow a strict method from recovery of evidence, documentation, laboratory analysis, testing, reviewing background information to establish the root-cause of failure. This allows us to recommend solutions to prevent recurrences in the future, improved safety, reliability and efficiency in equipment and operational processes. At times, such services are used to defend and establish liability in litigation or insurance claims.
Failure analysis and forensic engineering investigation involve systematic study and scientific analysis of a failed or damaged component, equipment or facility to determine the mode and root cause of the failure.
Failures may involve the rupture of a boiler, collapse of a fixed or moving structure, corrosion wastage of piping and breakdowns in plant equipment and facilities.
It’s only through proper engineering study and analysis that the root-cause of a failure incident can be determined with the support of scientific evidence.
We have a diverse pool of highly qualified engineers and scientists with many years of hands-on experience over a wide spectrum of industries. Coupled with our experience in condition and asset integrity assessment work, we have built a huge archive of failure analysis and condition assessment cases over the years. The synergistic experience in the macro- and micro- aspects of failure mechanisms and incidents puts us in a uniquely advantageous position to provide clients with the most comprehensive and reliable service.
