Forensic Investigation & Failure Analysis Consulting
Our forensic engineers are skilled in answering the “what” and “why” when failures occur
“What happened and what caused it?” are often the first questions asked after a catastrophic failure, fire, explosion, leak or injury. Of course, these are often followed by, “How can it be fixed and whose fault is it?”
As forensic investigation and failure analysis consultants, Ivey Engineering is frequently retained to conduct or assist with forensic investigations for answers to these and similar questions.
Forensic engineering is generally defined as the application of science and engineering to the investigation of a failure or incident. Within the framework of a system or component failure, IEI will provide forensic engineering services and assist in identifying the nature and possible causes of the incident, prepare engineering reports and offer expert witness testimony at mediations, arbitrations and trials.
