Dr. Meherwan P. Boyce, P.E., CEng, Fellow ASME, IMechE & IDGTE has over 50 years of experience in the field of TurboMachinery in both industry and academia.  Dr. Boyce provides litigation support, forensic engineering, failure analysis services, and expert witness testimony to the petrochemical, legal, insurance, public utility, and manufacturing industries. As the recognized leader in gas turbine technology, Dr. Boyce specializes in forensic engineering and expert witness testimony on combustion turbines, steam turbines and compressors.
The Boyce Consultancy’s team of licensed professional engineers applies their extensive years of knowledge of gas and steam turbine engines and combined cycle power plants to each case, determining and interpreting causes of damage or failure to equipment, machines, or structures.
The Boyce Consultancy provides technically accurate, deeply researched, and scientifically supportable forensic engineering analyses. Dr. Boyce’s integrity, diligence, world-leading expertise in gas turbine engines, and demonstrable scientific findings have provided high-profile clients such as Dresser Rand, Daimler Chrysler, Siemens Fossil Services Inc, Praxair, Occidental Chemical Corporation, and Calpine Corporation with the necessary tools for successful resolution of complex issues.
Dr. Boyce’s industrial experience covers 20 years as Chairman and CEO of Boyce Engineering International, and five years as a designer of compressors and turbines for various gas turbine manufacturers. His academic experience began in 1967 as an Instructor at the University of Oklahoma and includes the position of Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University and founder of the Turbomachinery Laboratories and the Turbomachinery Symposium in 1972 and is currently a very successful symposium. He is the author of several books such as the Gas Turbine Engineering Handbook (Fourth Edition, Elsevier); Cogeneration & Combined Cycle Power Plants (Second Edition, ASME Press); and Centrifugal Compressors, A Basic Guide (PennWell Books). He is a contributor to several handbooks: his latest contributions are to the Perry’s Chemical Engineering Handbook Seventh and Eight Editions (McGraw Hill) in the areas of Transport and Storage of Fluids and Gas Turbines, he is presently working on the 9th Edition. He has contributed chapters for the ASME’s Energy and Power Generation Handbook and A Handbook on Combined Cycle Systems for Near-Zero Emission Power Generation. He is Chair of the Committee which just completed the writing of the ASME PTC 55 Gas Turbine Aircraft Engines, which was approved as an American National Standard by the ANSI Board of Standards Review on July 29th 2013. He is also a member of the ASME Ethics Review Board. Additionally, Dr. Boyce has taught over 150 short courses around the world attended by over 4500 students representing over 400 Corporations.

I have been providing testifying expert services for three years focusing on Intellectual Property issues around sensor and data systems, primarily in vehicles. I have developed several IPR petitions as well as infringement and invalidity reports and testimony. I have developed complex sensor and data analytics systems since 1980 with an emphasis on vehicle systems since 1992 and particular expertise in distributed systems and connected vehicle systems combining information and processing from vehicles and infrastructure. I have in-vehicle technology expertise in the area of sensors (including maps, positioning, vision, radar, diagnostics and braking systems) and data processing (communications, data fusion, data analytics, machine learning). I combine this with expertise on connecting vehicles with the infrastructure (cellular communications, DSRC, WiFi, security, cost models, probe data collection) and the transportation infrastructure itself (traffic models, traffic operations, ATIS, tolling, data analytics, GIS) to provide various transportation applications (navigation, Usage Based Insurance (UBI), roadway management, information services (ATIS, 511), collision notification and warning, remote diagnostics electronic horizons, stability control, mapping, situational awareness and Driver Assistance (ADAS)). I have participated in, and sometimes led, the development of key telematics technologies working with major automakers (GM, Toyota, VW, Ford, Mercedes, BMW, Nissan) and suppliers as well as federal and state government entities. Prior to joining the automotive industry I worked on various aerospace systems, including radar, reconnaissance, communications, artificial intelligence, and tracking systems, as well as software development. I hold 6 US patents with several others pending. I present frequently and my work has appeared in multiple reference books. I am known for my ability to take complex subjects, explain them and excite my audience.

Dr. Kanellakopoulos is a technology leader with 25+ years of experience in R&D (Research & Development), operations, administration, and management in both academia and industry. He is the author or co-author of one book, 6 book chapters, 24 articles in refereed technical journals, 60 papers in refereed technical conferences, and 12 contributions to international telecommunications standards committees. He has been the plenary speaker at major technical conferences, and an invited speaker at more than 40 industrial and academic venues in 12 countries across 4 continents. He has designed and built telecom products such as DSL and Carrier Ethernet hardware and software, as well as a prototype fully automated electric vehicle that was used for research purposes on multiple college campuses. He has conducted extensive applied research in adaptive control of nonlinear systems, with applications to automotive control systems, specifically driver assistance systems and active suspension systems. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE, elected in 2005), and a recipient of multiple international awards. In addition, he has significant experience with international telecommunication standards (ITU-T SG15/Q4, 2006-2012), and has directed collaborative projects with several automotive/truck manufacturers and vendors (Ford, Mercedes-Benz, DaimlerChrysler, Freightliner, Gentex, Visteon). He has served as an Expert Witness since 2000, and has worked on multiple cases involving patent infringement in both the telecommunications and automotive areas, as well as personal injury cases involving automated equipment. His training in systems and control and his 8-year academic career at UCLA exposed him to a wide range of technology areas and have allowed him to make contributions to many of those areas. He has worked in telecommunications, mostly in system architecture and physical layer design for next-generation Ethernet Access Devices over copper and fiber, and in new algorithms for receiver based crosstalk cancellation. He has also dabbled in wireless communications, primarily on digital signal processing methods for new modulation schemes for baseband transceivers. In the semiconductor area he worked mainly in developing core technology for manufacturing and metrology. First, his deep technical expertise in the areas of telecommunications and automotive driver assistance systems has allowed him to analyze patents and products in detail, and explain clearly (in expert reports, depositions, and court testimony) the main issues that the judge and jury need to comprehend in order to understand the essence of the case. His extensive experience with teaching university students for 10 years and dealing with customers in the marketplace for another 12 years allows him to create documents and presentations that help judges and jurors understand the topic they are dealing with, instead of confusing them with unnecessary technical details. After all, it takes excellent teaching skills and a deep understanding of a complex technical concept to convey the essence of that concept to non-experts without talking down to them.
