The Council of American Structural Engineers (CASE) makes a subtle distinction between
structural engineers and forensic engineers. CASE defines a forensic engineer as,
"a structural engineer who, through training, education, experience and knowledge
is recognized by their peers to possess specialized information on a given structural
subject matter and who is experienced and versed in the ethical practice of forensic
engineering and is generally knowledgeable with the dispute resolution process."
