Failure Analysis and Engineering Methods

acoustics, modal analysis & signal analysis computer aided design (CAD) corrosion & stress corrosion crashworthiness 
deflection & stress modeling (FEM) fatigue life prediction & testing materials testing photoelasticity
photogrammetry product design quality control  residual stresses
sensors & data acquisition strain gage methods structural design wear

Analysis and test methodologies are designed to demonstrate the causes underlying a failure. Structural Acoustics has expertise and experience in developing protocols and test apparatus, conducting tests, and analyzing outcomes. System or component failure may be related to poor design of parts or software, applied overloads, improper use, wear, poor maintenance, corrosion, inadequate or improper testing, or a combination of factors. Tests can be performed in order to pinpoint the cause, and/or to rule out the contribution of factors of concern that did not contribute to a failure.
