Fluid Mechanics Expert Witnesses
What is a fluid mechanics expert witness?
Fluid mechanics expert witness candidates are typically professional engineers with extensive experience in fluid flow, and possess a background in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and/or chemical engineering. An engineering expert witness needs to not only have expertise but must also feel comfortable explaining technology to lay people.
What types of cases require a fluid mechanics expert witness?
Fluid mechanics, a branch of physics, is the study of the behavior of fluids (liquids, gases, and plasmas) at rest and in motion. Fluid mechanics has a wide range of applications in mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, biological systems, geophysics, oceanography, meteorology, and astrophysics.
Matters requiring fluid mechanics expert witness services often involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, inter partes review or trade secret disputes. A forensic expert can reverse engineer and analyze components to prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. A fluid mechanics expert might also provide testimony in a torts matter like personal injury or perform failure analysis for a product liability case.
