New Terminology for Terminology Standard: Forensic Engineering Incidents Involving Structures

1. Scope

The Committee shall promote Forensic Engineering knowlede and the development of appropriate standards intended to promote the awareness of the scientific, engineering, ethical, and legal consideration inherent in Forensic Engineering investigations, reporting, and testimony. The scope of the standards may include but not be limited to guidelines, definitions, methods for the collections, preservation, scientific examination, and description of physical evidence for purposes of dispute resolution, or reporting to a court, and the general practice of Forensic Engineering.

The activities of this committee will be coordinated with other ASTM committees and outside organizations having related interests.

Keywords

forensic engineering; structure; structures; structural damage; loading; failure; collapse;

Rationale

Entities such as state legislatures, the legal profession and the insurance industry often times create laws, rules and contractual relationships based on standard engineering industry terminology. All to often the terms that they choose to use are either illdefined for forensic engineering applications or simply remain undefined altogether. This standard is need to address those engineering industry terms that remain either illdefined for forensic engineering applications or undefined. This standard is to be relied upon and used by those entities that rely upon forensic engineering such as state legislatures, the legal profession and the insurance industry.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
