Abstract

When teaching Engineering to students it is important that we not only teach about
how to engineer new things but also look at the failures and performance problems
from an engineering point-of-view. The field that studies this part of engineering is
known as Forensic Engineering. The American Society of Civil Engineers defines this
field as: “The application of engineering principles to the investigation of failures or
other performance problems. Forensic engineering also involves testimony on the
findings of these investigations before a court of law or other judicial forum, when
required
