Mr. Cipriani received his Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering with Distinction from the United States Naval Post-Graduate School and his Bachelor of Science in Naval Engineering with minor in Aeronautical Engineering from the United States Naval Academy. His major emphasis is in mechanical engineering analysis of failures and vehicle and marine accident reconstruction. He has conducted mechanical engineering analyses in areas such as heating, ventilating and air conditioning system (HVAC) failures, boilers, furnaces, chillers, and piping systems used in both commercial and residential applications. Additionally, he has performed analyses of failures involving aerial lifts, scissor lifts, telehandlers, forklifts, and cranes. Also, he has performed product liability investigations, to include powder-actuated fasteners, air actuated nailers, lawn mowers and machine guarding. He has conducted vehicle accident reconstruction in the areas including analysis of causation, vehicle dynamics, speed determination, time-distance analysis, visibility analysis and testing, video recreations, light bulb filament analysis, occupant kinematics, photogrammetry, skid and acceleration testing, low speed impact analysis, computer analysis and simulation, and vehicle component failures such as brakes, steering, and suspension failures.
His casework has involved automobiles, tractor-trailers, trucks, buses, motorcycles, bicycles, construction equipment, farm equipment, pedestrians, personal watercraft, boats, and marine right-of-way. Mr. Cipriani is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), National Association of Professional Accident Reconstruction Specialists (NAPARS), and International Association of Marine Investigators (IAMI). Mr. Cipriani is a fully accredited Traffic Accident Reconstructionist with the Accreditation Commission for Traffic Accident Reconstruction (ACTAR). Mr. Cipriani is published and has provided expert testimony in courts of law.
