The Winning Line: A Forensic Engineer’s Casebook by Andrew Samuel BE (Mech), MEngSci, PhD, DrEngFIE Aust (auth.)

The Winning Line: A Forensic Engineer’s Casebook by Andrew Samuel BE (Mech), MEngSci, PhD, DrEngFIE Aust (auth.)

By Andrew Samuel BE (Mech), MEngSci, PhD, DrEngFIE Aust (auth.)

Engineering litigation is never approximately who's correct or who has been wronged. it's in most cases approximately which facet is ready to enhance and safe a successful line of argument that might, at worst, convince a ruling physique to settle the litigation of their favour or, at top, dissuade the opposite facet from continuing with the litigation.

Engineering litigation infrequently proceeds with no a few doubt within the case proof. The payment of this doubt calls for the judgment of a ruling physique. The case frequently proceeds as a formalised litigation drama. specialist witnesses can upload substance and credibility to the theatre. This publication uses a large diversity of good documented case examples to attract out the ideal point of substance and credibility had to win over opinion. The wide-range of casebook examples during this e-book are in response to the author’s thirty-year adventure in engineering litigation. There are examples of rather easy technical evaluate to complicated interactions of varied strands of engineering platforms from mechanical failure, product legal responsibility, human harm, fraud and crime to highbrow estate.

The successful Line: A Forensic Engineer's Casebook provides a different sourcebook for professional witness and underwriters in engineering litigation of a broad-range of well-documented case examples that may be used to devise their destiny litigation paintings and to aid them increase their very own profitable traces of arguments. scholars in forensic engineering and threat engineering will locate the book’s cross-disciplinary process a fantastic advent to the subject.

Dr Andrew Samuel is Professorial Fellow (hon.) in Mechanical and production Engineering on the collage of Melbourne. He has thirty years’ event of labor as knowledgeable witness in engineering litigation of equipment failure, human harm and highbrow estate and is lead advisor for the enterprise Engineering Investigations and Associates.
