Field Inspection and Testing

Engineering Components and Structures Field Testing

Stress Engineering Services is a leader in inspection and non-destructive testing of engineered components and structures. Our multi-disciplinary team of skilled engineers and technicians regularly perform in-situ assessments and non-destructive testing to identify the root causes of failures and assess the degradation mechanisms that impact the service life of components and structures.

Our work frequently begins by examining a component on-site, understanding its environment and service history, and selecting critical samples. We use our vast experience along with a wide variety of macroscopic and microscopic analysis and testing techniques to document the component, determine material properties, and identify the failure mode or suitability for continued service.

At Stress Engineering Services, we specialize in non-destructive testing methods and techniques that can accurately locate, characterize, and size flaws in a variety of components and structures from coke drums and consumer products to pipelines and medical devices.
