Electrical Failure Analysis

Fire can often be the result of electrical failure. Electrical energy may be converted to heat energy when a component or electrical connection undergoes failure. Resolution and understanding of the failure depend on expert analysis of the evidence. Determination of the origin, root cause, ignition source, kindling chain, and fuel are services that WHA provide. Successful mitigation and resolution of fire litigation from suspected electrical failures require the tools and experience that WHA can provide.

Some examples of electrical failures investigated by WHA include:

WHA can also provide electrical failure reconstruction testing to support failure analyses.
