House Calls: Doctors Treat Humans, Forensic Engineers Treat Buildings

Amy Patrick

Knott Laboratory

A heavy truck's wheels punch through a parking garage deck. A retaining wall collapses. Wind blows an airplane hangar over. Glass panes in a high rise start falling onto pedestrians below. You call your insurance company, but who do they call?

Spend time with a forensic structural engineer to see how she uses science and engineering principles to figure out why structures fail. See gnarly photos and bask in the schadenfreude of design failures as you explore the world of diagnostic engineering!
