Forensic Investigation

Unparalleled experience in the forensic investigation of buried arch structures, abutments and retaining walls, ranging from greater than expected cracking and excessive deflections through to total collapse.

Significant projects include:

  • Arch structures in the USA, Canada and Japan experiencing excessive longitudinal deflections under high fills.
  • Deflections of Heathrow Roundabout arch, UK.
  • Collapse of UK arch structure due to incorrect backfill procedures
  • Severe shear cracking in an arch culvert structure at Wilton, NSW
