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.
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.

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.
