The investigation process of structural failures

Structures can fail due to various factors: overloading, caused by climactic events, material deterioration, or issues during design, construction, or maintenance, is a common cause. In this video we explore the complexities of investigating structural failures, outline the steps involved and discuss subsequent actions. Our experts provide valuable insights into the role of forensic engineers in ensuring the safety and integrity of our built environment.

Commonalities between forensic engineering and the refrigerator? Preservation... of food or evidence!

While refrigerating food is a safe daily practice today, it wasn't always the case! Traditional methods of preservation such as dehydration, cooking, adding food additives, or canning have limitations, leading many researchers in the 19th century to explore new technology. James Harrison, a journalist, printer, politician, and even an inventor (he must have been bored!), was ultimately the first to obtain a patent for his refrigeration system in 1855.
