Ceramics expert witnesses may be called in for numerous types of cases, since multiple industries commonly utilize the material, which is clay that has been molded into a hardened substance by high levels of heat. Ceramics expert consulting may be sought out for cases involving such areas as construction, general contracting, materials science, mechanical engineering, materials engineering, metallurgical engineering, geochemistry, natural stone and tile, glass science, product design, and other facets of ceramic engineering and development.
Ceramics expert witnesses often have experience in the construction industry, as ceramics may be used as a material for many building projects. Ceramics may also be relevant in construction cases related to woodworking, glazing, windows, glass, sealant failures, doors, wall coatings, water intrusion, skylights, surface defects, structural performance and engineering, fenestration, and other such details, as ceramics may be used to support other materials and aspects of many building projects, each of which may become the subject of a lawsuit based on any construction defects revealed during building inspections.
Ceramics expert witnesses are also often experienced with various aspects of the scientific field, since ceramics are products of laboratory testing and development, as well as other processing stages. Such experts are knowledgeable with the effects of heat-treating, corrosion, fracture analysis, failure analysis, erosion, coatings, casting, polymers, and other scientific disciplines.
