Failure Analysis at Engineering Mechanics Corporation of Columbus (Emc2)
Columbus, Ohio-based Emc2 now offers failure analysis services. International materials expert Michiel Brongers brings 20+ year experience to the company. Forensic investigations of incidents and accidents involving mechanical equipment are done to determine the cause of the failure. To avoid a repeat, different conditions may be recommended; for example, a change of material, fabrication method, or operating condition.
Companies may also need a detailed analysis of an explosion or a fire, or follow-on litigation related to product liability. “We serve the oil & gas, power, chemical, and petrochemical industries with a well-equipped laboratory and knowledgeable technical staff”, says Brongers. When a failure is particularly complicated, Emc2’s research scientists can support the analysis by providing advanced modeling and theoretical analysis.
