FOR 623 - Forensic Engineering II


A second course in an introduction to forensic engineering, designed to survey failure modes in different engineering disciplines and in different products, including automobiles, aircraft, home construction, buildings and structures, marine applications, and household products. Techniques are described for gathering engineering evidence, assessing a likely cause, and designing a test replication. Report generation is also included. Designed primarily for the non-engineer, the course prepares the investigator for the task of seeking qualified engineering expertise and procuring laboratory support. No prerequisite is required: the course is free-standing.
