Material Science and Metallurgy

The way in which materials respond to their use conditions determines how they work and how they fail. Everything from consumer products to industrial machinery involves a material: Metals, plastics, woven materials such as textiles and even material combinations called composites.  When something breaks, a material is involved, so materials engineering is critical to analyzing failures. Yet, understanding why the failure occurred involves knowing more than just materials. Solution Engineering’s Experts apply the scientific principles of materials and mechanics to thoroughly analyze a material failure. We know the steps necessary to conduct an unbiased investigation and, if necessary, use a team approach to acquire the data needed to find answers to your technically difficult questions.  Solution is committed to delivering the precise results needed to make your product or litigation successful.
