Mechanical Engineer

A Mechanical Engineer expert witness in relation to Aerospace and Aviation is a professional who has the necessary qualifications, experience, and knowledge to advise on complex legal cases involving aircraft design or accident investigations. These professionals offer their expertise in engineering principles as well as their specialized insight regarding component failure analysis or any other subject related with design, operation and maintenance of an aerospace vehicle.

As a Mechanical Engineering expert witness for aerospace-related disputes, they evaluate each case individually using facts collected from various sources like reports, schematics and photographs. They often use computer aided drafting software along with basic engineering concepts like fluid dynamics or thermodynamics in order to reconstruct an accident sequence. Similarly if during a dispute concerning motor vehicle emissions the engineer may review test results or use computer simulations which look at fuel flow rates from previous tests conducted over the same terrain.

Finally some experts also offer guidance on what parts operators can replace instead of buying new machinery which can provide savings for their business. As an expert witness they are expected to provide impartial opinions that stand up to scrutiny under cross-examination from opposing counsels in Courtroom settings too. As such these professionals need to hold academic certifications and up-to-date research credentials both at the undergraduate level such as a Masters Degree or Doctorate Degree in mechanical engineering or at least some relevant experience creating products used by organizations within Aerospace & Aviation industry sectors.
