The author has thirty years' experience of work as an expert witness in engineering litigation of machinery failure, human injury and intellectual property and is lead consultant for the firm Engineering Investigations and Associates.
Forensic Engineering acts as an introduction and guide to those working in forensic engineering by detailing the processes involved in engineering litigation before demonstrating how these work in practice through over thirty case histories in mechanical failure, product liability, human injury, fraud and crime and intellectual property, covering the full range of subjects on which a professional expert witness in engineering may be called to testify.
Working as an expert witness is a career option taken by many senior engineering academics and forensic engineering is a growing minor subject in engineering faculties in the US and Europe.
