When things go wrong, it's sometimes failure of an engineering system. In these situations, Forensic engineering, will compliment Failure Analysis in trying to find out the root causes of failure.
In engineering terms, Forensic engineering is the scientific application of various engineering principles and methodologies for the investigation of material, product, or structural failures. With this in mind, it’s easy to see why it can be central to many insurance claims and litigations in the legal and law fields.
What we see is sometimes a coming together of several engineering disciplines that are used to determine why a particular failure occurred. Forensic engineering is then used to investigate and analyze what may have gone physically wrong in a given application or scenario and also to identify any probable mitigation.
At 3DForms U.K. we come with a wealth of experience to service projects in Forensic Engineering and Expert Witness to help support any legal and insurance litigations and claims. We only use state of the art laboratories for our investigations with a teams of vast disciplines from Metallurgy, Material Science, Analytical Scientists, product design and building materials as well as other Engineering disciplines all of whom are specialists in their own disciplines to help determine what went wrong.
We specialize in determining the root cause and origin of product, device, and structural problems resulting from material failure, corrosion, improper fabrication, poor maintenance, design deficiencies or indeed materials processing issues and other causes.
