The importance of Forensic Studies

Accidents happen no matter how carefully a building is planned. Designs in practice don't work, mechanical systems fail, or materials do not hold up as predicted. When this happens, unfortunately, there can be heavy financial implications to sort out responsibility for repairs. Performing a forensic study by senior engineers can help determine the cause of the failure. Further, understanding why a material or system did not work can help create an improved design in the future.
