About the Author

A METALLURGICAL CONSULTANT in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Donald J. Wulpi studied and analyzed failures of metal parts for more than 45 years. A graduate of Lehigh University, with a degree in metallurgical engineering, he spent most of his working life in several metallurgical laboratories of the International Harvester Company, now Navistar International Corporation. In retirement, Mr. Wulpi devoted himself to teaching the principles of failure analysis at the ASM International headquarters, in Materials Park, Ohio, and at various companies throughout the United States. He testified as an expert witness in product litigation cases for many years.
