OUR PROCESS

Our Expert Witnesses Serve As Active Practitioners And Our Practitioners Serve As Expert Witnesses

As a result, our testimony is informed by practical field experience, and our field practice is informed by anticipating issues that may arise in a legal setting.

OUR PROCESS

We Strive To Make The Complex Understandable

Our aim is to teach, communicate, illustrate and convey our ideas as clearly as possible. Our computer graphics specialists develop models, renderings and animations that are based directly on mathematical calculations to accurately and precisely present our ideas.

OUR PROCESS

There Is No Substitute For Relentless Critical Thinking

We keep asking questions until we’re certain we have command of the relevant facts. We don’t use advanced analytical tools as a crutch; we use them to validate our fundamental understanding of a problem. We begin our investigation by developing an understanding of the problems, constraints and desired outcomes and then apply our advanced modeling capabilities for simulation and illustrative purposes.

OUR PROCESS

We Don’t Go Home Until The Job Is Done Properly

In emergency response work, we maintain a 24/7 presence on-site to ensure safety. And in our deconstruction work, we make sure it’s all down before we leave a job site.

Forensics projects

Forensic Tools

Custom Animation

We use applied mathematics to simulate physical events such as component or system failure and to determine the significant parameters controlling an event. Graphical animation allows us to visually re-tell that physical event, converting the mathematical outcome into something we can see. We find this this be a compelling tool for most forensic projects.

Forensic Tools

Data Collection

The forensic process often requires confirmation of behavior and confirmation of position and condition of the structures and components under examination. We use tools such as laser scanners, thermal cameras, structural monitoring data acquisition equipment and other sensors to obtain data. Additionally, we use handheld devices to collect information that can be processed in real time with mapping technology. Our goal is to paint as comprehensive a picture as possible, and present it as clearly as possible.

Forensic Tools

FEA

Finite element analysis (FEA) can help us model the behavior of structures, bodies, gases and flows. We use FEA to find the response and determine the behavior of physical events and stresses in components, whether related to the collapse of a bridge, the effect of blast on a structure, the fatigue performance of crane girders or nuisance vibration of a floor.

Forensic Tools

FIM

Forensic Information Modeling (FIM) was developed as a tool for our Forensics practice and is a fundamental way to manage and analyze data in a 3D or 4D graphical model. The data is linked to model components for easy retrieval, keyword queries and statistical analysis. Our FIMs can quickly generate reports and visualizations of case-related data, enabling the clear, persuasive communication of complex technical issues.
