Mark Bailey, MASc PEng PE
MEA Forensic

Mark Bailey is a senior engineer at MEA Forensic and leads both the Aviation and Failure Analysis groups. He has investigated thousands of accidents, failures, and losses over the last 30 years. Mark is responsible for determining root and contributing causes of failures in aircraft, vehicles, industrial equipment, building components, and consumer products.

He relies on his background in mechanical and metallurgical engineering and a range of techniques such as microscopy, metallography, fractography, stress analysis, and simulation to determine why a failure occurred. It can also be important to determine whether the failure is related to deficiencies in design, manufacturing, maintenance, or use.

Mark has a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Metals and Materials Engineering from the University of British Columbia. He is registered as a professional engineer in British Columbia and Washington State. Mark has testified as an expert witness in several Canadian provinces and US states.
