The goal of a materials and mechanical forensic engineer is to identify the root cause of a problem, often on a microscopic level. Materials and mechanical analysis work in concert: You can’t have one without the other if you want to truly understand what happened and prevent it in the future. Reconstruction of the mechanical situation and identifying the lack of function points us in the right direction, while deformation, fracture analysis, and materials characterization gets us to the source of the problem—the root problem.
