There is a large variety of heavy vehicles out there and, though these machines are built to be durable, they operate in a multitude of environments and undergo enormous variation in stresses. Many things can go wrong with these expensive vehicles, including fire losses. To find out more about this topic, we sat down with Geoff Wowk, a Forensic Engineer from our Edmonton office.
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!
The raison d’être of Building Codes is ensuring the structural integrity of a building and making certain public health and fire and safety standards are met. Regardless of whether they originate from an incident or are discovered while investigating the cause of loss, building code violations and construction defects must be repaired to ensure the safe occupancy and use of the building. In this article, our experts explain all you need to know on the topic.
Forensic experts are regularly called upon to give their opinion on the cause and possibility for subrogation in cases of flexible water supply line corrosion. But rarely has a court ruled on liability in connection with such a loss. A recent judgment by the Superior Court of Quebec did so.
As is the case almost every winter, the extreme cold weather episode that affected Eastern Canada in the last few days has unfortunately caused a lot of water damage in buildings. We thought we would take the time to explain why, in a few lines.
Nikola Tesla: does that name mean anything to you? This is the tragedy of this Serbian electrical engineer, mechanic and physicist, born in 1856. This man, who held over 300 patents, generated the foundations of electrical engineering, which electrical engineers still use today.
