Abstract:

"Intended for the professional mechanical engineer, A Practical Guide to Engineering Failure Investigation has been written with the specific purpose of helping those involved in serious engineering failures."--BOOK JACKET. "When mechanical plant fails, the technical, legal, and contractual issues become very involved and complicated, and deciding causation can be difficult and prolonged. The principles and methodologies explained here will help engineers to link their technical knowledge to the commercial realities of working with insurers, loss adjusters, and their representatives."--BOOK JACKET. "This book explains the path taken by commercial liability and insurance-driven failure investigations and offers straightforward guidance on using technical knowledge to best effect. An ongoing case study is used throughout the book to illustrate the important principles."--Jacket.
