Physics, Mechanics and Forensic Engineering: The 1001 Lives of Isaac Newton
There are people like that who are born under a lucky star or… under the right tree! Yes, legend has it that Isaac Newton developed the theory of gravity after seeing an apple fall from his apple tree. He probably thought to himself "Why did it fall?" as he ate it. Isaac Newton is about much more than gravity! Discover what he brought to forensic engineering, and much more!
Santa's Elves: Craftsmen or Engineers?
Christmas elves are really busy during the holidays, and essential helpers for Santa Claus! But who are these sprites and what technologies do they employ? Did they receive training in school?

Demystifying slip, trip and fall claims
With colder temperatures upon us, slippery conditions will increase slip and falls claims. But icy surfaces are not the only cause of slip, trip and fall incidents. To give you some insight into handling slip and fall claims this winter, we sat down with Edmonton-based biomechanical engineer, Rebecca Moss, to explore the topic.
Leonardo da Vinci - a trailblazer in forensic engineering?
Let’s go back to basics: what do forensic engineers really do? The job is split into two parts. First, these specialized engineers analyze structural, mechanical, and other engineering failures: What was the problem? Why did it happen? Then, they develop methods to resolve them: what is the best course of action for repair or is there any avenue for recovery?
