Structural Failures & Construction Defects

Roads, bridges, tunnels, dams and other civil engineering feats are taken for granted by many. Given the enormous amount of engineering and construction work that is necessary to design and develop such projects, opportunities for structural failure abound. When civil engineering projects are damaged because of structural disasters, complex technical issues must be considered and the immediate concern for life and safety is paramount. At the same time, any evidence that helps identify the cause of the failure must be carefully documented and preserved.
