Expert Witness and Forensic Engineering

Some of the most unique engineering projects result from forensic engineering.  DMS has extensive experience supporting multiple forensic engineering projects.  Beyond basic expert witness capability, we offer the ability to recreate the incident.  But not a simple animation.  We offer simulation.  A full recreation where every single second is supported by full calculation of real world physics.  Animations just convey stories about reality.  Simulations are reality.

Our advanced simulations allow us to recreate events leading up to the incident.  We can predict forces, play out potential scenarios, and simulate the sequence of events.  All this can be choreographed and presented in convincing video animations with simultaneous graphs or timelines.  Our simulations provide more.  They provide evidence, validated and quantified by science.

Reasonable Pricing

Did you know that many consultants double their billing rates to give deposition as expert witnesses?  At DMS, we charge the same billing rate, in court and out. 

Not sure if you need an expert witness?  Just want some general background on the technical issues involved?  We offer general advice for free.  Try before you buy and get a feel for the value we offer.

Guts of CFD: Interpolation Equations

The core of all calculus problems require us to consider something infinitely small. Ask a computer to ponder the concept of infinity and watch its circuits fry. If we want to solve the equations of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), we need a way to fake calculus. This impacts the stability, the mesh quality, and the ultimate simulation quality. Enter interpolation equations.

Guts of CFD: Transport Equation

What is the utility of a transport equation? What do they achieve? Transport equations form the fundamental language of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). CFD engineers use them to communicate ideas, program CFD software, and diagnose problems with their simulations. But they only work if you understand the language. Today we explain transport equations and the significance of their terms.

Guts of CFD: Navier Stokes Equations

Navier Stokes Equation. Shrouded in mystery and intimidation. Navier Stokes is essential to CFD, and to all fluid mechanics. This equation defines the basic properties of fluid motion. But there is more to gain from understanding the meaning of the equation rather than memorizing its derivation. Today we review Navier Stokes Equation with a focus on the meaning behind the math.

Practical CFD: General Approach

Just fresh out of college, and the boss assigned your first project for computational fluid dynamics (CFD). You are excited. You can’t wait to begin the challenge. You sit down at your computer, start up the CFD software . . . and freeze like a deer in headlights. How to begin? What to do first? Today we discuss the general workflow for a CFD project and highlight some general modeling advice.

CFD Workflow

What happens behind the curtain when the CFD engineer goes to work? What goes into making a CFD simulation? As a project manager, you need to understand the workflow of a CFD project; this helps you plan the project and track budget expenses. When we understand the workflow, we know the right questions and can anticipate project delays.
