FIRE AND EXPLOSION ANALYSIS
With experience and data gathered from thousands of fire and explosion-related investigations, Vollmer-Gray Engineering Laboratories assists its clients in evaluating failures and implementing preventive measures. Our team of fire and explosion analysis engineers provides services in a wide array of engineering applications and problem-solving ranging from residential and vehicle fire analysis to the investigation of fires and explosions at chemical processing, petrochemical, manufacturing, and other industrial facilities.
We combine state of the art material characterization and testing methods, such as oxygen consumption calorimetry; ignition, flame spread, and combustion testing; and chemical analysis. We have performed full-scale fire testing. In addition to traditional fire investigation and computer-based tools, we routinely use innovative techniques such as 3D surveying methods, photogrammetry, video and image analysis, and three-dimensional computer animation to resolve and explain our client’s toughest problems.
