Dr. Badger has experience working as an expert witness and am available in the following areas:
Product failure: Due to improper grinding: thermal damage and burn, residual tensile stresses, “white layer”, burr, etc.
Grinding-wheel safety: Safe operating speeds, use of guards.
Asbestos-containing grinding wheels: Some early bakelite-core grinding wheels contained asbestos. If this core was intruded upon, asbestos fibers may have been released into the air. I have experience in determining what types of grinding operations are subject to core intrusion.
