FESA is an active Australian professional association collaborating in forensic technical investigations, reconstruction of accidents and failures, and research.

Established  in 2008, we work to -

  • provide a forum for education, discussion and promotion of matters of forensic engineering in order for members to be better informed

  • inform appropriate professional bodies, associations, firms and people in the community from time to time about the range of services provided by the members 

  • promote a high standard of consultancy for all relevant pertinent areas of engagement.

Next meeting (July 20) -  two presentations - Truck safety systems, and Traffic cameras

Last meeting: Fire investigation (2 speakers) - Thursday June 8,  Melbourne.  

Member Ian Eilenberg spoke on house fires related to (faulty) chimney designs, emphasising flue size, type, and spacing from flammable members.  Member Peter Hart spoke on truck and trailer fires - addressing the significance of (flammable) polymer wiring sheathing, giving seven main fire causes (see below), and mentioning difficulties in getting a government response to the industry's advice for tighter standards.   Talks were well moderated by Lawrence Reddaway, and a fine meal assisted our networking and discussions.




FESA offers members opportunities to learn, network, collaborate and grow their career.
