About the Event

Metallurgy, Materials Science and the Fire Investigation

Presenter: Roger Costanzi from Bureau Veritas

The presentation will introduce the audience to some of the metallurgical properties of

alloys and their response to high temperature, discuss more broadly materials science and

the tools and analytical equipment used when investigating equipment failures, and the

information they can provide in fire investigation cases. The forensic evidence sourced

from mechanical failure vs fire damage is very different, but there exists metallurgical

features for different alloys when exposed to high temperature that can aid the

investigation process. This evidence, coupled with analysis of nearby ancillary equipment

(fire damaged or not), can be used be to make a determination on the likely ignition

source(s). A number of case studies that Bureau Veritas have been involved with, and the

metallurgical features and evidence obtained from examination of fire damaged

equipment, will be shared with the audience.
