Forensic Engineering


What is Forensic Engineering?

Forensic engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the investigation of causes and consequences of a failure in a certain product. The objective of this specialty is to investigate the origin of the error to prevent it from occurring in the future, in addition to resolving conflicts of responsibility. At Infinitia, we apply forensic engineering to the investigation of materials, structures, components or systems.

Hence, we are the scientific police of materials. Just like at a crime scene, we are in charge of investigating claims, most of which occur during the production chain. Broken parts, corrosion, contaminated components… We investigate products from the time they are manufactured to the time they are put on the market.

As we like to say, we are real “detectives”. Our work consists of getting to know, asking questions, performing a materials test, carrying out an analysis in the laboratory or reproducing a simulation of the failure, among other actions. With this, we get to know first-hand when the incident occurs and offer a solution to the accident.

Among the most common cases we detect are those that affect the loss of functionality, the quality of the final product or the conditions of the raw materials. They are often caused by an anomaly in the manufacturing process, or also by misuse of the product.

How does Infinitia approach Forensic Engineering?

Thanks to the experience and professionalism of our team in materials science and production processes, from Infinitia we offer you an agile, efficient service with a high performance and added value in the resolution of problems related to materials:
Forensic engineering

Failure analysis

We perform materials failure analysis to determine the mode and cause of failure in production, product or market claims. We provide valuable, key information to establish responsibilities in an expert report, for example.
Forensic engineering

Quality control and testing

Our analysis and quality control laboratory stands out for its versatility. We carry out material failure analysis, as well as physicochemical, nutritional and microbiological analysis. We perform tests according to international standards or define our own tests to reproduce operating conditions.
