Guy as a Forensics engineer and a materials specialist has investigated multiple failures, such as high-rise building glass panel fractures, escape of water (pipe/connection failures) and power generation damaged parts. Numerous incidents resulting in major losses Guy has reported on, providing detailed information on the failure mechanisms involved. Sections of fractured glass-fibre reinforced plastic, corroded brass valves, weld defects and cracks have been comprehensively investigated. Guy’s expertise includes fatigue failure analysis, stress corrosion cracking, glass contamination, thermal fracture of glass, galvanic corrosion, weld and heat affected zone analysis. Guy has provided specialist reports concerning the lifing of component issues and discovering evidence for the cause of cracks and the presence of material defects.
Guy has experience of a wide variety of materials from ductile metals, ceramic matrix composites to specialist aluminium, plastics, glass and coatings. Comprehensive experience in microscopy and SEM/EDS analysis to determine chemical characterisation and the features of fracture surfaces and warping and dents. Also analysis of contamination from sealants or the environment etc.
Guy’s prior experience has included aerospace engineering, use and selection of adhesives, advising on REACH regulations, and resolving surface treatment anomalies. Guy had a lead part in testing programs for an EU funded research on novel nuclear technology. Budgeting and organising test programs for advanced alloys used in power generation and heat exchangers. High temperature component material selection, resolving heat treatment issues. Leading material mechanical and thermal testing programs over a range of temperatures. Consultation work on fast-crack and fatigue cracked machinery, identifying corrosion mechanisms and an investigation on warped roof tiles. Scientific research on the micro-structure of blades after various heat treatment options and its effect on their long term strength and stiffness in service conditions.
