Welcome to Forensic Engineering International (FEI)
We are a multi-discipline forensic metallurgy and materials engineering consulting firm specializing in failure analysis (fractures, failures, damage, corrosion) of metals and non-metals. FEI metallurgists and investigators have testified before U.S. Senate subcommittees, won a prestigious national award, and appeared on CBS� �60 Minutes�, in different matters.
Extensive FEI experience includes the mid-air explosion of TWA Flight 800 over Long Island, N.Y., other aviation disasters including the crash of UAL Flight 585 near Colorado Springs, CO; the nation�s worst train derailment (�Sunset Limited�) near Mobile, AL; Sudafed & Girl Scout Cookie product tampering; U.S.S. Iowa explosion, Wilberg Mine Disaster, and the catastrophic scaffold collapse at the Willow Island, WV, nuclear power plant construction site.
The firm specializes in metallurgical failure analysis of products, components and systems from a simple �system� such as a step ladder or a hunter�s tree stand, to complex ones such as a Phoenix missile guidance system and corrosion at a new utility plant in Cali, Colombia.
FEI metallurgists and investigators have over four decades of experience in:
Metal manufacturing & consumer use of both metal & non-metal products (including wood & plastics)
FEI principals and associates include various university professors in corrosion, mechanical engineering, statistics, metallurgy and materials science, a former NTSB aviation crash investigator, and former Chief de facto Forensic Metallurgist for the FBI Laboratory.
