Insight From Metallurgy Expert Witnesses

Metallurgy expert witnesses are engineers trained in the forensic aspects of failure investigation. Since the nature of most metallic failures begins at the microscopic level, it is necessary to have an investigator capable of starting with a high level failure and working it down to the metallic original form. Often times the origin and surrounding circumstances are a de-facto witness to the proximate cause of the failure in a metallic structure. Metallurgy expert witnesses are frequently able to trace failure events back to the root cause and provide answers to the concerned parties with regard to the physical and chemical components of metallic substance along with mixtures of metallic compounds that are usually called alloys.
