Hydraulics expert witnesses are often mechanical engineers with more than 20 years of experience in the field. Hydraulics is a branch of engineering focusing on the mechanics of various types of liquids. Like any other type of engineering, however, issues may arise during the design, construction, or engineering processes, as well as issues occurring during the active use of hydraulic machinery. There are many types of mechanics that utilize hydraulics.
Hydraulics expert witnesses may be called upon to offer an expert opinion regarding product defect, product liability, design defect, or cases related the civil engineering. For example, they might be able to assist when a case involves the structure of dams, bridges, sewage systems, piping systems, reservoirs, and other projects of which water is a major component. Hydraulics-related machinery factors into community-focused projects, making civil engineering an often major aspect of the hydraulics field. Such projects, like any other product of engineering, must adhere to the codes and compliance of construction so as to avoid accidents or construction defects from occurring. In addition, many commercial and industry machinery use hydraulics technology and they might become the subject of litigation.
Hydraulics expert witnesses are also often experienced with certain types of vehicles, such as automobiles and boats, as the mechanics often utilize hydraulic machinery into the engineering design.
