Metallurgical Engineering Expert Witness Texas 521242

Expertise Description

I have more than 25 years of experience in the field of metallurgical and mechanical engineering. My expertise includes the assessment of mechanical, chemical, and thermal environments on the behavior of metallic and non-metallic materials. I have experience in material applications in a wide range of fields such as aviation, biomedical, oil and gas production, and transportation. Most notably, I am an expert in litigation technical support, metallic material failure analysis, composite material failure analysis, plastic material failure analysis, structural integrity assessment of materials, identification of the root cause of failure (i.e. design, manufacturing or misuse/abuse), understanding complex scientific phenomenon and communicating such concepts to non-technical audiences. I have spent more than three decades providing courtroom testimony, deposition, and consultations as a metallurgical engineering expert witness.
