Forensic Engineering may be described as a science that deals with the relationship and application of engineering/scientific facts to reconstruct the sequence of events of an intentional or unintentional failure of an engineered product that led or may lead to economic loss and/or injury; and, to arrive at a conclusion of causal factors and remedies. Forensic Engineering is an effective engineering/scientific means to improve product performance, safety, and cost. When properly applied, Forensic Engineering can define the real technical issues in a design review meeting, hearing, or litigation.

In FORENSIC ENGINEERING, Dr. Brown shares the experience of experts in the areas that define the field of forensic engineering. This unique book assists engineers & manufacturers in assessing the safety of their industrial, structural, & consumer products, and in determining the cause of product failure, with an eye towards minimizing defects in future product designs. FORENSIC ENGINEERING tells the complete story by addressing not only the scientist's or engineer's role, but also that of manufacturers and other parties that are involved in product safety and quality; including government agencies, legislators, the courts, insurance companies, attorneys, institutional consumers, and individual consumers.
Clearly written and free of excessive technical detail, so that it reaches a diverse audience, the book first explains the legal basis that brings together many entities as well as their interrelationships. The early chapters also outline the positive steps that can be taken to minimize damage related to engineering design, manufacture, and use.
No book on the market today, so thoroughly delves into the process of failure analysis, a major subdiscipline of forensic engineering.
