Why did it happen? Can it be fixed? How long will we be out of service? These are key questions faced by stakeholders after a fire or explosion event.
CTLGroup structural engineers, materials scientists, and modeling specialists are equipped to evaluate the effects of thermal and pressure loads on a variety of structural systems and materials. Our experts work closely with our in house laboratory staff to characterize thermal induced material changes and provide recommendations for repair. Working in tandem with chemical engineers and fire investigators we can assist with the determination of explosion origin and cause through the analysis of structural blast indicators which are used to estimate peak pressures achieved during blast events.
