Accidents Investigation Center (CENPERCA)

The objective of the INEGI's Accidents Investigation Center (CENPERCA) is to resolve cases related to accidents in an industrial/work or transport context. Due to its proximity with the Faculty of Engineering but also to the entire University of Porto, it enjoys the knowledge of multidisciplinary specialists, capable of giving an integrated and effective response to requests with different origins.

The services provided by CENPERCA are essentially related to three main areas:

Scientific Reconstruction of Collisions
  • Expert investigation and scientific reconstitution of accidents.
  • The actions foreseen in a CENPERCA expert report include, for example, detailed analysis of the accident, access to specialised bibliography, damage compatibility, numerical simulations.

Surveillance and Prevention
  • Verification of industrial equipment, non-destructive analysis, failure analysis. 

Material Analysis
  • Numerical simulation of mechanical components, fatigue analysis, fracture mechanics, mechanical design validation.
