Structural Analysis

Forensic investigations frequently involve analysis of structural systems and materials that are historic, deteriorated, distressed or not constructed in accordance with design drawings. Accurately analyzing these types of non-conventional systems requires careful assessment of material properties, restraints and connections, and detailed consideration of in-service loading.

YAES engineers specialize in analyzing existing buildings and structures utilizing a toolkit of engineering principles, finite element computer modeling, stress-strain compatibility, load testing, material testing, and historic and conventional codes and standards.
