Symposium Advanced Materials for Harsh Environments
Presentation Title Root Cause Spectroscopic Failure Investigation Aided by High Resolution SEM/EDS, FT-IR, XPS Instruments
Author(s) Jeanette Vass
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Jeanette Vass
Abstract Scope My talk will demonstrate the severe consequences of non-compliance with Quality-Control and Testing Protocols. This investigative study reveals a devastating failure affecting more than 100,000 newly built Southeastern US coastal homes where living conditions became dangerously toxic, resulting in a serious environmental catastrophe with an enormous cost of 2 billion dollars. Our laboratory team was forewarned and started investigating this this very alarming, widespread, environmentally induced disaster. My presentation describes how the investigation established and accurately identified the root causes through applied and integrated application of Standard and Micro-Scale-Spectroscopic Tools in failure analysis (FT-IR, SEM-EDS, XPS, & more). By identifying the emitted corrosive substance, our investigation determined the root cause of the problem and enabled area residents to secure compensation through Class-Action-Lawsuits. Lesson to be learned: the enormous health and reconstruction cost of this devastating failure could have been prevented and this presentation will show you how.
