The damage analysis of (air) tires is a focal point of my work. Through my leading position in the development department of a major tyre manufacturer and more than 30 years as a sworn expert for tyre damage, I have built up a wealth of experience.
Many courts entrust me with the preparation of expert opinions.
I also analyse wheel and chassis damage as a consultant and expert for industrial and private clients.
In the event of disputes between suppliers and vehicle manufacturers, I have also carried out investigations in order to reach an out-of-court agreement on the settlement of damage claims and recalls.
I have spent more than 30 years working on the fatigue life and reliability of metallic components.
In the damage analysis of dynamically loaded metallic components, the fracture pattern provides decisive information. A distinction is made between fatigue fractures and violent fractures. Due to the characteristics of the fracture surfaces, important hints can be given on the damage process.
