Forensic Engineering Investigation by Randall K. Noon

By Randall K. Noon

Forensic Engineering research presents analyses and strategies for deciding on how anything used to be broken and while the wear can have criminal outcomes. It covers 21 of the extra universal kinds of disasters, catastrophic occasions, and losses forensic engineer could be referred to as upon to evaluate. each one bankruptcy is self-contained, hugely particular, and succinct.

The strike has three choices. It can follow the pipe and ground out in the motor, water, or where it is in contact with the earth. This type of circuit arrangement, where the resistances are in parallel, is often called a circuit divider. 2 are algebraically solved, it is found that the amount of current that would enter the motor windings in this way is trivial, well less than one-millionth of the total current. This is not enough to cause damage. Thus, there is no physical reason why current from a lightning strike would flow in any significant amount through the water pipe, through the housing, into the rotor shaft, and ground out in the windings.

Highly technical calculations or extensive data are normally listed in an appendix, but the salient points are summarized and explained here for the reader’s consideration. Conclusions: In a few sentences, perhaps even one, the findings are summarized and the conclusion stated. The conclusion should be stated clearly, with no equivocation, using the indicative mode. For example, a conclusion stated like, “the fire could have been caused by the hot water tank,” is simply a guess, not a conclusion.

Because kinetic energy increases with the square of velocity, a level 9 wind has only about half the “punch” of a level 12 wind. 5 Additional Remarks Most of the major building codes do not simply use a single wind speed of 80 mph for design purposes. Within the codes there are usually multipliers that account for many factors, including the height and shape of the building, gusting, and the building class. 15 is to be applied to the pressure exerted by the wind when “important” buildings are being designed, such as schools, hospitals, and government buildings.
