Forensic Engineering

  • Forensic engineering is the application of engineering principles to the investigation of failures or other performance problems. Forensic engineering also involves testimony on the findings of these investigations before a court of law or other judicial forum, when required.

    Failures are not all catastrophic, such as when a building or bridge collapses, but include facilities or parts of facilities that do not perform as intended by the owner, design professional, or constructor.

  • Forensic Engineering Division

    The purpose of the Forensic Engineering Division is to:

    • Develop practices and procedures to reduce the number of failures
    • Disseminate information on failures and their causes
    • Provide guidelines for conducting failure investigations
    • Provide guidelines for ethical conduct in forensic engineering
