Failure Analysis

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.
