Mechanical Engineering Expert Witness Austin 513497

Expertise Description

I am a mechanical engineering expert witness with more than two decades in the field. I have expertise as a professor teaching and researching such topics as thermal-fluid analysis, fire physics, combustion science, and heat and mass transfer processes in reacting systems. I have researched computational techniques to characterize fire behavior to better fire prevention and fighting, as well as investigated mechanisms to control reacting flows of flames in order to reduce pollution emission. I have offered consultations and deposition for more than 10 years as a mechanical engineering expert witness.
