Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis

It is with great pleasure that I write the first editorial for Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis. (Richard Clegg)

We believe that the journal fills an important niche in the market. Other professions such as medicine and the law make great use of case studies, but engineers have not really formalised this to the same extent. It may be that our education tends to lead us to the view that all problems can be solved based on “First Principles” or through a program of rigorous scientific experimentation. But it has long been my belief that an enormous amount can be gained by studying how things behave in practice, and there is no better teacher than failure.
