Electrical Failure Expert, Electrical Engineering and Electrical Fire

electrical fire

Electrical fires are often the result of some degree of an electrical failure. When such electrical fire occurs, successful resolution depends upon investigations, evaluations, and analyses by scientifically trained engineers experienced in electrical failures resulting in fire ignition.

Bison’s knowledge and experience enables the firm to quickly and accurately determine the origin and cause of failures in consumer products. Unfortunately, these investigations occur only after the result of an electrically related residential or commercial building fire. A partial listing of such electrical incident investigations includes:
  • Consumer products
  • Appliance failures
  • Residential dwelling wiring
  • Residential electrical service equipment
  • Commercial electrical service wiring and equipment
  • Electrical distribution systems
  • Production process controls and machinery
  • Instrumentation and signal processing systems
  • Electrical failures
  • Electrical contacts
  • Electrocutions
  • Lightning damage
  • Electrical fires
  • Electrical failures

The Uncertainty of Electrical Fires and Electrical Injuries

The expertise to understand an electrical related injury as the result of eletrical fires, arc-flash, electrical contact or electrocution is critical to determining the real cause of the incident.

The mechanisms for electrical trauma are distinct as are the damage that they cause.

Arc-Flash – is the heat and light energy emitted during an electrical fault or arc. The arc is due to a breakdown in the insulation covering between two energized components or between an energized component and ground.

Electrical Contact – is an involuntary but nonfatal flow of electrical current through the human body. Severity of the injury is based on the location of the contact on the body as well as the duration and characteristics of the electrical source (voltage, frequency, and available current).

Electrocution – is death resulting from the flow of electrical current through the human body.
