Forensic Materials Engineering for Product-Liability Litigation

November 13, 2018 | Track 139 Restaurant

Every manufactured product is made from a natural or engineered material. Unfortunately, some things are made from the wrong material, or are made from the right material, but in the wrong way. Those mistakes can lead to product failures that have serious consequences. When a product failure is analyzed to determine the cause, the material performance is a critical factor to consider, and a materials engineer will be an integral component of the investigation team.
