Forensic Analysis
WTC Complex

ARA provides forensic analysis on accidents, crashes and explosions. ARA uses a multidisciplinary physical and chemical approach to develop realistic simulations and determine the root cause of the incident.

We can model highly complex events such as freight derailments with multiple tank cars and potential release of hazardous materials considering all aspects from the physics of derailment to ensuing rupture to ensuing material dispersion.

ARA performs assessments for military and civilian facilities, including military bases, federal buildings (offices, courthouses and embassies), airports and industrial facilities.
