About Building Failures Forum

Building Failures Forum at buildingfailures.com was launched in July of 2010 as an educational site dedicated to the study and dissemination of failures information and news.  The forum is intended for those who are involved in forensic engineering, building performance evaluation, building technology and disaster response as well as for those who just want to learn more about designing and building better buildings through the study of failures.

A companion site, Failures Wiki (refer also to the  Resources Link) is dedicated to creating and maintianing an extensive library of failure case studies and system failure analysis and evaluation discussions.

Building Failures Forum is administered by M. Kevin Parfitt, P.E., F.AEI.  Professor Parfitt can be contacted at MKev@buildingfailures.com or mkp@psu.edu.
