Forensic Failure Analysis of Hunting Bow
Failed Hunting Bow

Forensic failure analysis on a hunting bow incident that resulted in an injury. The draw weight, like most hunting bows, is adjustable, and typically determined by hooking the bow string on a scale and drawing the bow.

During this procedure, the bow had failed. Metallurgical and nondestructive testing was performed on various parts of the bow, and found no manufacturing defects. 


We perform forensic engineering investigations on sporting equipment, appliances, and industrial equipment – providing expert witness testimony based on comprehensive, quantifiable results.
