A forensic engineer investigates materials, products, structures or components that fail or do not function as intended, which is essentially a failure analysis. The goal is to positively identify the sequence of events and integrity of materials leading to failure.
Vista Engineering has extensive experience investigating a wide range of incidents and failures. Our process is always unbiased and scientific. We apply proven engineering and scientific principles to identify the reason behind the failure.
After an incident/accident, we will examine broken parts and bring together a list of probable failure mechanisms to be investigated. We will conduct interviews and determine the precise sequence of events that lead up to the failure. We will review all technical specifications, drawings, policy procedures, and more to provide an unbiased investigative analysis which will allow us to objectively determine the failure.
