Coal Silo Explosion - South Korea

02 October 2014


Envista Forensics engineers were hired to determine if the collapse of a coal silo was the result of an explosion or other factors.


Through Envista's investigation, our engineers determined the key components required for a dust explosion to occur were not present at the time of this incident.


Following this investigation, Envista engineers determined that the wall of the coal silo buckled due to the concrete mixture not being properly controlled, causing the reinforcing steel used in this structure to separate from the plane in the wall.
