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

Established  in 2008, we aim 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.

Last meeting - 18 August

Smart Structures

Twenty members attended an interesting 5:30 presentation at Swinburne University's Smart Structures Lab (Hawthorn campus), where two forensic engineers - Prof Emad Gad and Dr Javad Hashemi - demonstrated the facility's state-of-the-art test equipment.  More details about the facility are HERE.   We then repaired to the nearby Auburn Hotel (the Geebung Polo Club) for 6:30 drinks, dinner and excellent talks from our hosts.

  • Professor Emad Gad, Acting Dean of  the School of Engineering & Chair of Department of Civil and Construction Engineering, spoke on Damage Detection in Timber Power Poles.
  • Dr Javad Hashemi, Deputy Director, Smart Structures Laboratory (Structural and Earthquake Engineering) spoke on State of the art Testing Techniques for Assessing in Planning or in-Use Structures (e.g. Buildings/Bridges/Vehicles) and Predicting Failure Modes. 
We thank our guests for their hospitality and their very interesting talks.

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