Fracture Mechanics Expert Witnesses
Fracture mechanics expert witness candidates are typically licensed professional engineers with extensive experience in mechanical engineering and/or metallurgical engineering. An engineering expert witness needs to not only have expertise, but must also feel comfortable explaining technology to lay people. The selected expert may be a member of an industry association, such as the American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME).
Matters requiring fracture mechanics expert witness services often involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, inter partes review or trade secret disputes. A forensic engineer can reverse engineer and analyze components to prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. A fracture mechanics expert might also provide testimony in a torts matter like personal injury or accident reconstruction, or perform failure analysis for a product liability investigation case.
Litigation support by a fracture mechanics expert witness could include forensic engineering, mechanical testing, 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 testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek a mechanical engineer for pre-litigation consulting work.
