Play • 59 min

Today we are joined by Erin Hughes, PE, a forensic structural engineer.  In this episode we learn all about forensic structural engineering, or the study of how failures occur in buildings.  From hurricanes and tornadoes to house-flipping gone wrong, Erin walks us through how this field of engineering is carried out.  We also get a bonus conversation about amphibious buildings, or houses that float during floods so that they are not inundated with water.
