ATLSS engineers hope to test the metal for possible problems, though it is not clear whether the cracked steel caused the accident or was simply the result of it. "What we're doing is essentially an autopsy" on the pieces, said John W. Fisher, professor emeritus of Lehigh University and founder of ATLSS.
