Heat Transfer Expert in Endothermic Compounds

Case Description:

A heat transfer expert with knowledge of endothermic compounds was sought for a patent infringement case involving heat transfer technology used for aviation. Aviation companies frequently employ endothermic compounds to create a heat transfer system for flight data recorders. The patent related to the use of an endothermic compound to conduct heat transfer to provide protection to sensitive electronic devices, specifically flight data recorders.

IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate heat transfer experts with a strong background in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, or materials science who could consult on the use of endothermic compounds for heat transfer. Specifically, an expert was needed to provide a forensic analysis of aviation electronic devices.
