How can Exponent's visual demonstrations effectively explain electrical component failures to key stakeholders?
Once a root cause has been established, a failure scenario demonstration is an important step to explain to key stakeholders, insurance investigators, and courts of law exactly how a product failed or how an accident occurred.
Using a multidisciplinary approach, we test and analyze every angle of product design, manufacturing/assembly, distribution, and operating instructions to determine how a failure occurs. Exponent often provides expert testimony and scenario demonstrations to explain how such failures occur. This can often be a demonstration of electrical systems and devices, consumer electronics, medical devices, automotive electronics, as well as involve data science and cyber security investigations.
Our robust testing facilities are located throughout the United States and provide controlled environments where we assist with failure demonstrations.
For 50+ years, we’ve thrived on solving unstructured problems that require bespoke solutions. Some of our services include:
• Accident re-creation
• Accelerated stress testing
• High-voltage electrical insulation failures (hi-pot testing)
• Single-point failure testing
• Software vulnerability testing
• Cybersecurity and code
