About the Expert

Through multidisciplinary, systematic analysis, inspection and testing we determine the failure holistically, examining related systems, material characteristics, individual parts, maintenance, environment, product specs, history, design, existing conditions, or a combination of such factors. We determine how and why the failure occurred, focusing on the mode and the root cause, whether it be the material itself, or environmental interactions or degradation.

Areas of Expertise

  • Failure Analysis
  • Metallurgy

Expert's Profile

Dr. Reza Mirshams has Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Industrial Metallurgy and Metallurgical Engineering and is a Licensed Professional Engineer with 40 years combined industrial and academic experience. Dr. Mirshams is a tenured full professor in engineering technology and has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in the areas of metallurgy, manufacturing processes of materials, failure analysis of materials, fracture mechanics, fatigue, creep, engineering product design and development, engineering mechanics, materials selection, and mechanical behavior and fracture mechanisms. His research interests include mechanical behavior of materials-microstructure relations, manufacturing processes, mechanical properties of materials in nano and micro scales, and the study of advanced materials for structural applications in mechanical systems. His industrial experience include as technical director in high strength alloyed steel casting and steel rolling mills, process engineering design, failure analysis of structural parts due to various loading types, fatigue and creep, fracture mechanics, stress corrosion cracking (SCC), and galvanic corrosion. He has testified and has been involved as an expert witness in several materials failure analysis and litigation cases. and has published 75 articles, technical reports, and professional presentations in national and international conferences and workshops.

He is a member of National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE), The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), and an engineering education program evaluator (PEV) for ABET.
