Australia-wide Forensic Engineering Investigation
Forensic engineering is primarily concerned with the link between engineering at law, whether civil or criminal. Our team employs Root Cause Analysis techniques to systematically examine the events leading up to an incident and identify the cause and contributing factors. This is done to discover the cause of failure in a particular material, component, product or structure.

Engineering disasters, such as the collapse of a structure or crane, will often be subject to a forensic engineering investigation. Questions regarding fault, liability and negligence will often result in court proceedings.
The forensic engineers at FIELD Engineers are competent to lead your investigation which may require materials analysis, inspections, NDT, FEA or stress analysis.
At the end of the investigation the forensic engineer will provide you with a report which will include information on the problem and its cause, documental evidence (photographs, engineering drawings, testing records, quality control records, etc), potential solutions and suggestions for improvement, and evidence to support the entire report. It may be necessary for the engineer to present any findings in court, particularly in matters of litigation.
