Forensic Engineering


Preventing Material Failures Through Forensic Engineering

Testlabs International applies both the art and science of forensic engineering to investigate and analyze material failures and any subsequent mishaps. To prevent future breakdowns from happening, Testlabs offers solutions in the form of recommendations based on industry standards and sound engineering practices.

Testlabs International’s engineers routinely perform forensic engineering in the areas of:

Metallurgical Failure Analysis
Polymeric Failure Analysis
Protective Coating Failure
Corrosion Engineering

Our experience in analyzing failures includes those occurring from:

Stress Overload
Creep and Stress rupture
Corrosion related failure (see corrosion engineering)
Wear failures
Rolling contact fatigue
Brittle fracture
Poor design
Poor heat treatment
Poor mechanical properties
Poor material selection
Combination of mismatched dissimilar materials
