Guidelines for Forensic Engineering Practice, Second Edition, describes the technical, ethical, business, and legal components of the professional practice in forensic civil engineering in the United States. The practice of forensic engineering includes the investigation of buildings, bridges, and other constructed facilities that fail or do not perform as intended. It also involves rendering opinions as to the causes of failure or underperformance and testifying in judicial proceedings. Topics include: competencies and qualifications of forensic engineers; standard of care; investigations and reports; ethics; the legal forum; and the business of forensic engineering. The ASCE Code of Ethics is included in an appendix. Civil engineers of all disciplines, including structural and geotechnical engineers, will consult this book for guidance on the effective and ethical practice of forensic civil engineering. This book serves as a primer for engineers new to forensic practice and as a useful reference for seasoned practitioners.
