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.
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.

No discussion of hydrofoils is complete without addressing their application to the 2013 America’s Cup yachts. Catamarans screamed across the ocean. But with all that excitement, we sometimes forget how the crew jeopardized their lives in every race. This article presents an engineering perspective on the America’s Cup hydrofoils of 2013, with options for improvement.read more
Why would an airplane company design a ship? When considering hydrofoil ships, aircraft share many of the same requirements. More specifically, every hydrofoil vessel needs a method of motion control, even sailing hydrofoils. This article discusses the problem of hydrofoil control and several solutions.read more

A refined hull shape epitomizes the link between tradition and science. When we link the science of ship design with the experience of past ships, we identify the successes and isolate previous failures. This article glimpses into the background of hydrodynamics by exploring the link between the science of Bernoulli’s equation and the shape of ship hulls.read more
