Abstract

Forensic engineering is loosely defined as legal investigations undertaken by engineers covering failures in products, processes and designs. As such it contains many attractions to engineering students and the use of engineering failure can be very effective for the teaching of engineering concepts. However, it is not easy to adapt material for case studies. Using an everyday failure, the type of problems that arise in the preparation of teaching material based on engineering failures will be identified and discussed.
Key words:
Forensic, failure, engineering, legal, assessment
