Heat Transfer Expert Witnesses
What is a heat transfer expert witness?
Depending on the specific product or process involved in a case, a heat transfer expert witness is typically a licensed professional engineer with extensive experience and expertise in mechanical engineering, thermal engineering, and/or industrial design. In addition to technical expertise, an engineering expert witness must also possess the ability to explain technology and evidence to lay people, such as judges and jurors.
What types of cases require a heat transfer expert witness?
Heat transfer, a discipline of thermal engineering, commonly refers to the transfer of heat from a high temperature object to a lower temperature object. Matters requiring heat transfer expert witness services can involve intellectual property, such as a patent infringement case, trade secrets dispute, or a patent proceeding before the International Trade Commission (ITC). A forensic engineer can reverse engineer components to prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. A heat transfer engineering expert can also be instrumental in a product liability or personal injury case.
What litigation support work might a heat transfer expert witness be expected to perform?
Litigation support by a heat transfer expert witness could include forensic engineering, failure analysis investigation, accident reconstruction, research and authoring expert reports, providing expert opinions, deposition, and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, the attorney team may request a subject matter expert with prior expert testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek a mechanical engineer for pre-litigation consultant work.
