Electrical Failure Analysis Expert in Thermodynamics

Case Description:

An electrical failure analysis expert in thermodynamics was needed for a breach of contract suit involving electrical systems related to starter relay devices in certain consumer products. Two leading home appliance manufacturing corporations alleged that a major technology company manufactured and supplied defective electrical system components which failed at excessive rates, creating a risk of fire hazard.

IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate an electrical failure analysis expert in thermodynamics with an engineering degree and experience in electrical systems, failure analysis, and reconstruction. This expert was asked to have experience in the behavior of metals under thermal stress.
