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.
Creating the perfect gingerbread house can be a delightful yet complicated process. Maybe even frustrating if you have a penchant for excellence! But fear not, perfectionists – this year, CEP has your back!
The history of the automobile is simply fascinating! Do you know the secrets of its evolution, spanning a mere 130 years? Discover the impact of innovations on collision reconstructions and vehicle investigations.
Exploiting all material evidence to reconstruct an accident or a loss means above all observing, investigating, recording. So here we are. From its first foundations to the definition that we know today, forensic engineering uses all scientific methods to bring together the elements needed to complete an investigation. What could be more logical than starting our new infographic series on the world's greatest inventions with printing and photography.
Going where the eyes of the investigators can’t. Getting an unequaled vantage point to take aerial photos and videos of a site. Designing a 3D model of a site based on aerial images to allow a virtual visit to the location and fine tune the investigation. These are the reasons why CEP Forensic has been using drones for the last four years to enhance our forensic investigations. We sat down with our forensic investigator, Caitlin Ringland to talk about this topic.
Summarizing the career and life of Albert Einstein would be difficult… to associate him with forensic engineering even more so! For many of us, he's that shaggy-haired scientist, sticking his tongue out and shouting "E=mc²." However, this pop culture image doesn't really do justice to the political and global influence he had throughout his life.
