When materials fail, they do so for a number of reasons: fatigue, overload, creep, corrosion, erosion, poor welds, wear, improper materials, design, manufacturing, defects, modifications, poor maintenance, and misuse. Ethos Engineering & Testing, Inc. has extensive experience in performing field and laboratory investigations into the root cause of material failures. Our experience in design of products enables a unique perspective to perform failure analysis on a variety of products and processes. Our findings have been used to help clients make informed decisions and provide the support needed to derive meaningful answers in difficult litigation issues. We are always available for consultation via phone, email , or even stopping by our fully-equipped facility.


Often Ethos is required to visit the site of an accident or failure to conduct thorough documentation and collection of evidence before conditions change. Our staff is on call around the clock to respond to critical situations immediately. Ethos also provides expert witness testimony to present technical evaluations of accident and failure events.


Ethos is fully equipped to host multi-party testing and inspections for litigation support, insurance, warranty claim, and in-house failure analyses. Our facility boasts multiple meeting spaces and large inspection areas as well as private meeting rooms with the latest technology and multi-media equipment available. This makes our facility ideal for multi-party groups and meetings. Our experienced professional engineers and technicians are also available to perform testing on our state-of-the-art metallurgical and chemical analysis equipment to complete the process.
