Mechanical Engineering companies have consulted us to develop design specifications, and civil engineering companies have called on our services to help choose materials for anything from lock gates to the roller bearings used under motorway bridges.

We use our expertise to help resolve technical disagreements in a range of industries. One such case concerned the cause of cracked bearings under the Thelwall viaduct, which spans the M6 motorway in Cheshire, UK. Our broad experience of the effect of mechanical loading, combined with environmental conditions on materials’ performance, was crucial to the investigation.
