Damage investigations

SP assists accident investigations to find the answers to questions on the accident: Why did damage occur? Was the accident due to environmental factors, overloading, material defects, manufacturing errors etc? What type of fracture has occurred? Can similar accidents be avoided in the future?

SP's various speciality areas work together on investigations into damage to structures and components through such means as traditional metallography with optical microscopes, scanning electron microscopy with EDX, material tests, strength calculations and so on. Chemical analyses can also be performed, as can video event analysis when necessary.
