This presentation shows several problem situations and the rules of the game as played by the industry and the courts. It makes three basic assumptions. One, the Materials Engineer knows ho to perform all of his/her technical duties. Two, the Materials Engineer is aware of what he/she and the contractor has been hired to do. And, three, the Materials Engineer is not the Project Engineer of Record. The first situation is what to do when practices or materials are not in compliance with the specifications. A common example is slump of concrete.
