Forensic engineering

Tecsa S.r.l., through its specialists, provides consultancy services on the analysis of anomalies, near-accidents. This activity is an essential element of an effective security management system. The analyses are carried out using well known reconstruction techniques (Root Cause Analysis, Bow-Tie) and supported by the more classic techniques of risk analysis to identify the technical and organizational management measures to mitigate the probability associated with the onset of similar problems. The analysis of the anomaly is also supported by the acquisition of trends of possible alarms over time to highlight specific triggers.

In the event of an accident at work or an industrial accident Tecsa S.r.l. offers specialist technical consultancy services in the field of forensic engineering both for support in the identification of problems and for support in civil and criminal proceedings possibly carried out as CTP and also for support in investigations for insurance purposes.

Tecsa S.r.l. specialists in forensic engineering have followed numerous cases of accidents at work, fires and explosions, also of national importance, both in the role of CTP and in the role of CTU on behalf of the investigating and judging magistracy. For many of these cases, in-depth articles are available in international scientific journals.

The surveys are conducted using internationally recognised consolidated methods (e.g. NFPA std. no. 921) and using specialised calculation codes for the simulation of the dynamics of complex incidental events.

These activities are managed through a specific forensic division called MFCforensic, for which a specific summary brochure is available for download.


We would also like to point out the internationally important volume entitled “Principles of Forensic Engineering applied to Industrial Accidents“, by the authors Luca Fiorentini (TECSA S.r.l. – MFCforensic), Luca Marmo (Politecnico di Torino – MFCforensic), 2017 , Wiley, Chichester UK, ISBN 978-1118962800.
