Fluid Dynamics Expert in Porosity and Stress Tolerance

Case Description:

A fluid dynamics expert was requested to perform intellectual property valuation services in a bankruptcy case. A medical device manufacturer specializing in orthopedic implants and cardiovascular devices had developed technology for surgical implants and required patent valuation as part of its asset valuation process.

IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate fluid dynamics experts with knowledge of porosity issues and stress tolerance. The expert needed an engineering background and an understanding of materials science to consult on the patented technology's applications in a surgical setting. This expert was asked to explain the subtle dynamics between types of pressure conditions, high and low static atmospheric pressure, and how fluid or liquid would behave in these situations.
