Piping system failures in power plants, refineries and buried pipelines are investigated by Intertek’s forensic engineering specialists.
Industrial piping failures can cause serious damage and injuries when the high-energy liquids or gases they carry are suddenly released through a crack or breach in the pipe wall. Our piping system consultants and laboratory staff have performed hundreds of forensic investigations of piping system design and failures. Our multidisciplinary expertise includes field examination, laboratory testing and computational modeling.
Field examination techniques include:
Laboratory testing techniques include:
Computational techniques include:
Coming Soon: Case study examples of the types of piping failures that we have analysed in our forensic engineering practice:
