Forensic Engineers

There are many examples of forensic methods used to investigate accidents and disasters, and one of the earliest in the modern period being the fall of the Dee bridge at Chester, England. It was built using cast iron girders, where each of which was made of three very large castings dovetailed together. Each girder was strengthened by wrought iron bars along the length. The bridge was finished in September 1846 and opened for local traffic after approval by the first Railway Inspector, General Charles Pasley. However, on 24 May 1847, a local train to Ruabon fell through the bridge and the accident resulted in five deaths (three passengers, the train guard, and the locomotive fireman) and nine serious injuries. The bridge had been designed by Robert Stephenson, and he was accused of negligence by a local inquest.

Duties of Forensic Engineers

Although strong in compression, cast iron was known to be brittle in tension or bending. On the day of the accident, the bridge deck was covered with track ballast to prevent the oak beams supporting the track from catching fire, imposing a heavy extra load on the girders supporting the bridge and probably exacerbating the accident. Stephenson took this precaution because of a recent fire on the Great Western Railway at Uxbridge, London, where Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s bridge caught fire and collapsed.

From blasting damage to sinkholes, vehicular impact to design defects, swimming pool damage to floor deflection, our team of seasoned forensic engineers is uniquely qualified to evaluate and diagnose structural issues. Don’t settle for a best guess opinion—get a clear and defensible opinion from EMA.

Purpose of Forensic Engineers Baton Rouge Assessment

As one of our primary services, forensic engineers baton rouge investigations, have gained in popularity with our clients throughout Louisiana Mississippi & Tecas.  This service is for those who suspect they have a defective structure or defective system within the structure. For example, you have an A/C system that just doesn’t work right and you have had three different companies out and you received three different answers.  Who do you trust?  These inspections are designed to gather information quickly, determine the “Who, What, Where and Why” of the defect and the remedies needed to solve the problem.  We generate a report that provides overwhelming evidence for winning a potential court case for our clients. This type of service is extensive and may require destructive examination in order to determine what the defect is, and who is at fault. Because of its nature, this type of work requires an extensive knowledge base and experience of the construction industry.  An inspector must be able to visualize the inner workings of the structure or system in question and be capable of documenting his findings in a manner that is easily understood. Our staff has honed their skills through many years of experience in the field, not behind a desk, and we have the expertise to know how to convey the message.

  • growth of large mold colonies;
  • septic system collapse;
  • trip-and-fall injuries;
  • structural collapse;
  • fire and explosions;
  • toxic sludge and materials containing waterborne bacteria; and
  • electrical shock hazards.

Damage Inspections

  • Inspect the flood damaged building exterior for damages  by downed power lines and gas leaks. Gas leaks will smell like rotten eggs. If you suspect a gas leak, contact the utility company immediately by damage inspections houston.
  • While entering the building, see if the door sticks at the top. If it does, this could mean that the ceiling is ready to collapse. After you open the door, stand outside the doorway, clear of any falling debris.
  • Wear sturdy, treaded boots. According to the American Red Cross, the most common injury following a disaster is cut feet. Broken bottles, nails, glass, and other dangerous debris may litter the floor, and stairs may be very slippery and can pose risk to damage inspections houston..
  • Once you are inside the home, check for gas leaks again. If you smell gas or hear a blowing or hissing noise, open a window and quickly leave the building. Turn off the gas at the outside main valve, if you can, and call the gas company from a neighbor’s home. If you turn off the gas for any reason, a professional must turn it back on. Never use an open flame inside of a flood-damaged house unless you know that the gas has been turned off and the house is ventilated. To inspect for damage, use a battery-powered lantern or flashlight, and not an open flame or electrical fixture in the house by damage inspections houston.

Damage Inspections

  • Do not use appliances that may have gotten wet unless you know they have been dismantled, cleaned and dried.
  • Do not work by yourself. If you are injured, it might take a long time before you receive assistance. If you must work alone, bring a cell phone or radio so you may call for assistance, if the need arises.
  • Bring a HEPA-rated respirator to use in case you detect extensive mold. If you are asthmatic or otherwise at heightened risk to mold exposure, leave the

    building. Other inspector-safety equipment, such as gloves and coveralls, may also prevent contact with mold and other contaminants.

  • Examine doors, walls, windows, floors and staircases to make sure that the flood damage inspections of  building shows no signs of potential collapse. Inspect for loose plaster, drywall, and ceilings that may fall. Also, inspect the foundation for evidence of cracks and other structural damage that may render the building uninhabitable.
  • Inspect for fire hazards, such as broken and leaking gas lines, flooded electrical circuits, and submerged furnaces and electrical appliances. Flammable and explosive materials may travel from upstream. Be aware that fire is the most frequent hazard in homes following floods.
  • Inspect for electrical system damage, such as broken and frayed wires, and burned insulation. You can turn off the electricity at the main fuse box or circuit breaker. If you have to step in water to get to the fuse box or circuit breaker, call an electrician first for advice. Electrical equipment should be inspected by a qualified professional and dried before being returned to service.
  • Inspect for sewage and water supply-line damage. If you suspect sewage lines during flood damage inspections have been damaged, avoid using the toilets and instruct the client to call a plumber. If water pipes are damaged, instruct the client to contact the water utility company and avoid operating the tap.
  • Use caution while inspecting crawlspaces for a variety of reasons, such as the presence of mold, sewage, asbestos, chemicals, rodents, and the risk of structural collapse.

Our process of observation and reporting can include review daily construction activities. We check compliance with structural drawings for projects.

EMA prepares and review construction inspections of contract documents, job specifications, change order details and review, and project final closeout documents.

EMA Field Observation Reporting & Construction Observation Activities
The architect’s responsibilities for observing construction and determining if the contractor is supporting the design intent fall into six categories:
construction observation, document clarification, submittal review.
payments to the contractor, certification of completion, and project closeout.
Observing Construction
The architect is typically required by contract to keep the owner apprised of construction progress and quality. The owner relies on these reports to keep up with the progress and quality of the work, and a close owner architect relationship can result from this direct form of communication.
To document what the engineers has observed in the field and enable the delivery of this information to the client, the architect can use AIA Document G711™, Architect’s Field Report. As with all document types issued repeatedly during a project, each report should be dated and sequentially numbered

Roof Engineers New Orleans INSPECTION PROCEDURES

The starting point of the Inspection should be the interior of the building. The interior walls and ceilings should be checked for signs of water staining. After inspecting the interior a thorough inspection of the exterior walls should be made along with the roof system.

The following roof components should be inspected:

Flashing: These are the protection for the membrane termination and often provide a waterproof cover at the membrane termination. These include Counter- flashing, expansion joint covers, copings and flashing at walls and curbs. A variety of problems may occur at these vulnerable locations.

Penetrations: These are pipes, drains, vents, stacks and other items that penetrate the roof membrane. These MUST be flashed properly to assure a watertight roof system.

Field Membrane – What to look for:

· Open seams excessive blisters, wrinkles, ridges or areas of non-adhered membrane.
· Worn spots holes or deteriorated areas of the membrane.
· Deteriorated, areas of surface coating on the membrane.
· Adequate, drainage and ponding problems of the membrane.
· Areas around rooftop equipment that may have been degraded by leaks or spills or punctured by dropped equipment parts.
