Failure Analysis Expert Witnesses
Failure analysis is the analytical and efficient examination of equipment or machinery by studying data to determine the cause, probabilities, and consequences of a failure, and correct the cause.
For instance, sometimes materials fracture progressively crack under repeated alternating, recurring and intense stresses. Our failure analysis expert witnesses, speakers, and consultants specialize in a broad array of disciplines including:
- Materials science
- Polymer coatings
- Polymer solid state structure
- Mechanical engineering
- Failure analysis
- Product safety
- Accelerated testing
- Electronic packaging
- Processes and physics of failure
- Polymer science
Our failure analysis experts have completed metallurgical investigations, mechanical testing, corrosion evaluation, engineering analysis, failure analysis, personal injury investigations, and problem solving to determine if failures and accidents were caused by abuse, use of the wrong material, improper heat treatment, design errors, or other reasons. These experts have successfully testified in a variety of cases and are prolific authors.
