When Hurricane Harvey struck the Texas Gulf Coast Thornton Tomasetti was on site to perform condition assessment survey, cause and origin investigations, and post-loss analysis. This work was done as part of our Property Loss Consulting practice.
Hardened Test Pit
This high pressure extreme temperature (HPET) pit configuration required a blast lid to contain the insulateda enclosure and any energy release that could occur through testing of a variety of test items. Thornton Tomasetti estimated the blast loads and fragments for an accidental failure and designed the hardened lid enclosure.
