Materials science is a specialty within the field of engineering responsible for the design, discovery, creation, and manufacture of new materials for various uses. Materials are unique depending on each industry. Experts in materials science may have a particular area of focus within the field, so it is very important to hire the right expert with the knowledge that is relevant to the specifics of your case.
Materials science is also referred to as “materials science and engineering,” since it plays such a major role within the engineering industry. Engineering often designs new machinery and other types of products that require various materials, such as metals and alloys, graphite, concrete, composites, polymers, or carbon. Some of these materials may be applied to chemistry, for example, while others may be applied to finding new applications for solar energy. Regardless of how such materials are used, research, development, and testing are vital stages of materials science. Many issues regarding engineered products and machinery, whether it is an accident or mechanical failure of some sort, may be traced to the materials being used and the materials science field.
Materials science is involved with many products and machinery, making the choice of expert in the event of a lawsuit very important. Call ForensisGroup or submit an expert request form to find the best materials science expert witness for your case.
