I need a 2 to 3 pages analysis paper for forensic engineering. It is about a condo porch deck. The main beam supporting the deck exposed to long term water stain. We need to write a forensic engineering analysis for it. Owner said the exposed beam is caused by wind hence caused wood deteriorate. We need to write an analysis explaining the cause and origin of the problem including any wood rot, shrinkage, wood connections problem, porch concrete crack due to movement of beam.
This is only an analysis to find the cause and origin of the problem. NO calculation involved. Therefore, I need someone with experience in wood frame construction rather than engineering calculations.
