Forensic Analysis of Wind Turbine Component Failures
BLADES & COMPOSITES
Wind turbine blades are fabricated from composites. Our principal engineers are experts on how blades are built and why they fail.
Wind turbines are rotating machines in which dynamic amplification can occur during operation with damaging results for equipment.
Wind turbines are expected to intercept multiple lightning flashes without permanent damage to structure or major components.
We solve mysteries when components fail.
We are skilled at forensic analysis of wind turbines and apply over thirty years of design experience to permanently solve the root cause of problems.
What is the specific problem, failure, or issue to be investigated?
Collect data about conditions that lead to the observed outcome.
Develop, implement, and verify a solution that will correct the root cause of the issue.
Monitor and control the process to assure a permanent solution.
Wind Turbine Expert Legal Support
Our engineers have over thirty years experience providing expert technical reports and testimony for clients enaged in dispute resolution proceedings.
We regularly investigate the causes of wind turbine component failures and support development of permanent solutions.
Evaluate the measurements to identify the root cause of the problem.
