AEI Laboratory Facilities – Equipment & Capabilities

The right tools can make all the difference. That is why AEI built and maintains one of the foremost state-of-the-art facilities at our headquarters, in Littleton, CO. With over 14,00 square feet and a secured outdoor lot, we are able to easily host large-scale examinations and store sizeable artifacts.


Wildfire Season

While summer brings the warm temperatures we’ve all been craving, it also carries the increased risk of wildfires. As evidenced by several large wildland fires in recent months, the impact of these events is expanding as more people begin to live in WUI’s, or wildland urban interfaces. These are areas where homes back up against forested land, and in Colorado alone, there are approximately 2.9 million people living in a WUI.

When a wildland fire occurs, fire investigators like AEI’s Jeff Berino are dispatched to the burn area to determine the fire’s area of origin and cause. Mr. Berino looks for indicators of the fire’s direction of movement to pinpoint an area of origin, then determines the cause from within that area. We will be spotlighting some of the most interesting indicators of fire movement over the summer.

Be sure to follow us to learn more about how AEI handles wildland fire investigations!

Our fire investigators would be happy to assist you on your next wildland fire case – you can contact us at info@aeiengineers.com, or by calling 303-756-2900.

Microscope Monday’s – Fractured Bolt

This image might not look like much, but to a materials science engineer, it tells a lot. This fracture surface indicates that the bolt failed in reverse bending fatigue. (This type of failure can occur when repeated bending of an object occurs cyclically, in opposite directions, causing stress.)

Multiple initiation points are observed, and the presence of oxides indicates which fracture surface is likely initiated first. Further analysis in a scanning electron microscope (SEM) can use fracture features to calculate the number of cycles and other attributes of the loading conditions.
