Mechanical Failures

The potential for mechanical failures exists in many vehicle systems, components and sub components. When a mechanical failures occurs in a moving vehicle the result can be catastrophic. Sudden loss of driver control may leads to serious injury or fatality.

BME professional engineers have analyzed hundreds of vehicle related mechanical failures including, but not limited to, axle failure, steering linkage failure, throttle linkage failure, wheel lug nut failure and tire failure.
