Tim’s post-graduate career began at supersonic speed as a fighter pilot for the Canadian Armed Forces. Back on the ground, before joining BME in 1985, Tim’s work comprised ten years in the field of applied strain gauging and related load-measuring technology. Tim is our company’s expert in all aspects of static and dynamic load testing.

His work, however, has been largely focused on analysis of motor vehicle accidents in almost all phases: vehicle dynamics, occupant injury exposure, and mechanical system failures. Tim’s aeronautical background and failure analysis skills have enabled BME to undertake a number of aircraft-related accident investigations for the Coroner’s services and other authorities.
