We work with our clients to first detail the specific goals of the investigation. Whether the focus is on determining liability, identifying if your component is a contributing cause, the circumstances surrounding the incident, or designing methods to prevent future occurrences; ESI will conduct a thorough analysis and provide appropriate documentation to satisfy both technical and non-technical users. We can also provide expert witness services if required.
Engineering Specialists Inc. has the knowledge and resources to conduct accurate origin & cause evaluations for:
- Mechanical Failures. Mechanical engineers analyze if components are interacting properly as intended by the design. Mechanical failure investigations are completed on a wide range of items including commercial and residential equipment and components, passenger vehicles, and agricultural machinery.
- Structural Failures. Structural engineers perform scientific investigations, research and analysis to determine the causes of structural distress and/or failures. They also design and detail repairs and/or replacements of structures and components. A communications tower overstressed or failed by wind and storm damage is one example of a typical structural evaluation for product failure.

- Electrical Failures. Forensic engineers will also diagnose how an electrical component may have contributed to a product failure. Electrical events such as lightning strikes and damaging power surges are investigated.
Many product failures are a result of a combination of structural, mechanical, and electrical systems, and whether they have been maintained and used as intended by the original design. If fire is a cause, or the result, of a failure, ESI has certified fire and explosion investigators to ensure a thorough analysis.
