Forensic Engineering

SEI August 2024: Special issue on ‘Forensic Engineering’

The built infrastructure consists of increasingly complex structures which are, by nature, all prototypes. As technical products, failure of structures is possible, and gets even more likely with longer service life. However, failure of structures is relatively rare which is the basis of society’s trust in infrastructure. All cases of failure require careful analysis and assessment to provide a concise basis for litigation and to incorporate the findings in future risk mitigation strategies.

Another special aspect of Forensic Engineering are the strongly different practices and cultures worldwide. This leads to very different approaches to forensic investigations in different countries. However, recent cases of structural failure have clearly proven the increasing importance of sound forensic analysis in a world of ageing infrastructure.

Therefore, the SEI Special Issue ‘Forensic Engineering’ invites Research and Development papers as well as Case Studies describing the analysis and assessment of structural failures, the use of the findings in risk mitigation, the corresponding influences on standardization and construction practices, and further subjects related to Forensic Engineering.
