Mechanical Failure Analysis

Vista Engineering regularly performs mechanical failure analysis for the insurance industry.

We employ a scientific approach to investigate mechanical failures, identifying contributing factors and mitigation steps. Our experts have experience in various industries, including manufacturing, HVAC, and more.

Equipment Loss HVAC

When a mechanical system or component fails, it can cause loss of property and productivity in any business. Claims related to these failures must be addressed quickly and thoroughly. Our experts are members of American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) so they understand the intricacies needed to discover the root cause of failures.

Evidence Testing

Vista Engineering can provide physical evidence when advanced testing is required. Our laboratory is equipped to perform testing of industrial machines, pressure vessels, windows and doors, aerospace components, structures, and many other types of products.

Machine Testing

Our experts regularly solve mechanical failure issues through the investigation of CAD, in-service data, and material data coupled. Our teams are also physical testing experts and can suggest solutions to client test failures, and validate simulation with physical testing.

Strand 7 Modeling

Vista has the ability to create three dimensional computerized models to meet specific geometric requirements. The models are then imported into Strand7 software to perform the complex calculations. These models can be used to simulate the action of the incident.
