Expert Forensic Engineering and Accident Investigations for Testimony and Consultation

AIS Forensic Testing Laboratory, Inc. is a provider of expert forensic engineering for accident investigations for testimony purposes or case consultation (consultant to attorney). Our objective expert(s) have been qualified as an expert in federal and as well state and county jurisdictions across the United States of America and has also provides objective engineering expertise for corporations that desire to find the engineering truth when an accident occurs at one of their facilities.

The forensic testing laboratory has experience in boiler explosions, steam explosions, hot water explosions that result in burns as well as furnace explosions and power plant and heating plant design deficiencies as well as the following:

  • Fire Tube Scotch Marine Boiler Steam Explosion
  • Chemical Plant Explosion: (75,000-gallon) Tank Filled with Flammable

Why Use AIS Forensic Testing Laboratory, Inc.? Experience on reconstructing chain of events on cases that are over six-decades old to find causation and after site restoration. Our forensic laboratory has identified chains of events that initiated in construction that caused a roof fire from poor/lack of construction design and material that were used 15-years ago and years after the accident site was restored.

Our goal is to provide objective engineering truth using our forensic engineering resources that apply to expert engineering, technical testing using our laboratory facility with scientific objectivity. Wire Mesh preparation for FEA Finite Element Analysis on Pressure Vessel
