30 Forensic Engineering, Canada’s leading and fully-independent multidisciplinary forensics firm continues its in-demand weekly webinar series with the 5th instalment in the popular curriculum. Join industry leading experts on Thursday, June 11th as they lead a discussion on: Soil-Structure Interaction – Losses Requiring Geotechnical & Structural Expertise. This dynamic webinar will be of importance to industry professionals such as: insurance company personnel, risk managers, independent adjusters, legal community + more.
With increasing pressure to expedite projects or reduce cost, insufficient expertise or field data has become a more prevalent issue leading to failure or damage of structures and foundations. As forensic engineers, we have attested how buildings, bridges, or other structures have failed due to a lack of subsurface investigation or soil-structure interaction analysis.
The purpose of this webinar is to present the typical requirements applicable to losses where structural and geotechnical expertise is necessary to perform forensic engineering investigations. Geo-structural forensic investigations may require determining the origin and cause of a loss and assessing the condition of properties comprising structures and foundations. Experts may also need to specify and implement emergency response and remediation actions. Evaluating risk at different stages of a project is essential in identifying the necessary measures to eliminate or reduce risk and ensure safety.
This webinar will facilitate the following learning outcomes to insurance adjusters and lawyers that provide services involving property losses comprising structures and foundations (e.g., building and non-building structures, bridges, infrastructure, industrial plants and commercial facilities, retaining structures, and others):
Understand the types of properties and losses that will require structural and geotechnical expertise to perform forensic engineering investigations.
Find out the latest methods to investigate the condition of soils, foundations, or structures where soil-structure interaction is relevant.
Understand the importance and benefits of assessing risk at different stages of a loss from initial investigation to remediation.
Find out suitable methods to monitor the condition of structures and foundations.
