TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Armstrong Forensic Engineers (Armstrong) today announced the opening of a new office in Salt Lake City, Utah, and the hiring of respected forensic engineer Alan F. Asay, P.E., M.S. Armstrong's presence in Utah complements the firm's offices in Florida, Illinois, Michigan, and Texas and rounds out its platform for providing Rapid Response inspection services within eight hours throughout the United States.
"The Salt Lake City office is exciting on two fronts: It is another milestone in our strategic plan for national coverage capability within eight hours of a client request and we are pleased to have Alan Asay on board to serve clients in this region. Alan brings a wealth of experience and unique insights to the discipline of accident reconstruction services," said Daniel J. Melcher, P.E., Director of Engineering.
Alan F. Asay, P.E., M.S., has made notable contributions to the discipline of accident reconstruction. Going beyond standard simulations, Alan researched and developed a new testing protocol in which cars are crashed using a moving barrier, called a Massive Moving Barrier™ (MMB). In this protocol, the reference frame is shifted and the MMB brings a rigid object into a stationary vehicle. This unique testing method replicates the damage while improving accuracy and provides additional perspective for analyzing an accident event.
"I'm excited to be part of the Armstrong team and about the prospect of continuing my research in forensic engineering. I look forward to providing consulting services to clients across the western United States," said Mr. Asay.
