A fluid mechanics expert witness is typically a professional engineer with extensive experience in fluid flow, and 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.
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.
Litigation support by a fluid mechanics expert witness could include forensic engineering, expert reports, depositions, and expert testimony at a trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request an expert with prior expert witness experience. In addition, clients may seek a mechanical engineer for pre-litigation consulting work.
