Mechanical Engineering

The field of mechanical engineering is a broad, encompassing field. As applied to forensic analysis, mechanical engineers apply the law of physics and fundamental engineering principles to the analysis of potential device failures (e.g. a vehicle’s steering system, anti-lock braking system, etc.)

Mechanical engineers typically apply tools such as: fundamental theoretical models, computer simulations, and forensic animations, where required, to solve problems involving:

  • Product and/or device failure
  • System or process safety
  • Product safety
  • Product design
