Areas of Expertise

Some of the services offered at CEP-Sintra are outlined below. For more information on how we can help with your specific circumstances, give us a call.

Injury / Biomechanical

CEP-Sintra’s injury experts bring an in-depth understanding of the injury investigation process to every case. We understand that our clients need to know if the injury was caused by the incident in question, if the injury was exacerbated by a pre-existing condition, and if it could have been prevented.

Collision

CEP-Sintra’s team of collision experts has experience with all facets of collision investigation. Our collision investigators know which questions to ask, what to look for and how to determine when a more in-depth investigation is required.

Mechanical

Mechanical Engineering is a fundamental part of our life. When it becomes critical to understand the cause of failures and accidents, what seemed very compli­cated suddenly looks crystal clear with the support of our Mechanical Engineers.

Metallurgical

At CEP-Sintra our experts commonly utilize metallography, optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) to characterize materials and determine the cause of failure or malfunction.

Electrical

At CEP-Sintra, our comprehensive expertise allows us to take on challenges of any size and scope,  including investigating equipment failures, determining stray voltage causes, identifying the electrical system impact during a fire, and modeling a complex distribution network.

Civil / Structural

When structures fail or buildings collapse, safety is paramount. Before we begin our investigation into why the failure happened, we need to know if it is safe for investigators and other experts to be in the structure at all. This is especially true following fires, which can compromise the structural integrity of buildings. Our forensic team can assess a building’s safety before further investigations get underway, as well as providing insight into causes and repair recommendations.

Fire and Explosion

CEP-Sintra’s team of forensic engineers and certified fire investigators utilize state-of-the-art techniques and investigative procedures, while continuously keeping abreast of recent developments.
