Part 1 Summarizes the lessons learned in engineering design, fabrication and construction
Part 2 Describes the major advantages of finite element analysis in performing failure analysis of components
Part 3 Describes how mathematical simulations and materials science are effective tools to accurately quantify the relative degrees of liability between the defendants – which is useful in litigation and arbitration.
