Forensic Engineering

Black Laboratories personnel participate with other engineers in Forensic Engineering studies which seek to determine the root cause of engineering failures. Most forensics studies involve either litigation or insurance claims. A wide variety of materials failures have been investigated, including stress-corrosion failure of brass plumbing components, fatigue fracture of nautical racing fixtures, wear deterioration of marine diesel engine components and biological attack and deterioration of polyurethane tubing.
