Structural Analysis by Justin Hall P.E., Expert Witness Engineer
Structural analysis expert, Justin Hall P.E. provides structural analysis which is the determination of the effects of loads on physical structures and their components. Recent earthquakes have impacted many structures that now require attention and should be subject to the evaluation of a structural analysis engineer. This may include more than just homes such as any structure that must withstand loads, such as bridges, platforms, decks, retaining walls as well as homes and buildings. Structures or buildings under construction at the time of the earthquakes must be evaluated by a qualified structural analysis engineer to ensure that the effects of natural disaster are not left as failure opportunities upon the completion of these projects. The money spent ensuring stability and safety of a structure is incomparable to the cost of after-repair and, worse case, ensuing litigation as a result of faulty structural analysis engineering investigation.
In cases where a repair has been performed on a defect found in a home, the repair must be performed by a qualified contractor and must be reviewed prior, during, and after the repair is complete by a qualified structural analysis engineer. The materials utilized and methods must be precisely according to those specified by the professional engineer signing off on the repair. In the case of disputes, liability or court case related findings, a structural analysis by an expert witness engineer may be warranted. A failure analysis on the construction process or forensics that reveal structural integrity by the expert engineer are documented in reports and used in litigation.
