What do you think of when you hear the word forensics? CSI? Law & Order? Dexter?
Certainly, forensic evidence is a key part of successful criminal investigations, but it’s also crucial for engineers tasked with determining the root causes of mechanical failure or malfunction. Forensic engineering is sophisticated detective work that relies on physical clues, data records, and other evidence to reconstruct the past and figure out what went wrong. More importantly, it helps us figure out how to prevent such accidents from happening in the future.
At CPP, we look at evidence from the perspective of experienced experts and solve cases in which wind is a contributing factor. Using a nuanced understanding of how airflow moves in and around physical structures, we piece together technical narratives to explain the circumstances that lead to failures and recommend solutions that will keep them from occurring again.
Some of the kinds of cases we have helped solve include the following:
CPP’s leaders regularly provide consulting, expert analysis, and testimony in cases involving insurance claims, injury due to unsafe environmental conditions, and other situations in need of expert information. And our founders have been called upon in countless cases in which insurers needed reliable, unbiased information about the causes of damage.
When severe winds affect your building or structure, the experts at CPP can deliver the reliable information and recommendations you need to get back on track and back to business. It’s just another way we promote environments that are safe, efficient, and reliable.
