Richard E. Stogran, P.E., CFEI, CVFI

Consulting and Forensic Engineer

Engineering Fields
  • Automotive
  • Mechanical

Mr. Stogran has always possessed a desire to understand how and why things work. It was when he started disassembling appliances at his childhood home that his mother decided to focus that desire and steered him in the direction of engineering. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering, he joined a limestone quarry and cement manufacturing plant in northern Michigan. As a plant engineer, he designed machine components for crushing equipment and installed new process equipment such as pneumatic transport pumps, limestone crushers, and conveying equipment. When the opportunity arose to become a project engineer with the same manufacturer in a South Carolina plant, he accepted the position and relocated. At this facility, he managed multiple multi-million-dollar installations, with experience ranging from contract development, bid evaluation, contractor work force management, building construction, new process line installation, scope of work development, and testing and evaluation for code compliance.

Since joining EDT in 2011, Mr. Stogran has been consulting in the areas of damage assessment, mechanical component failure analysis, and industrial/commercial equipment failure analysis. His professional pursuits are not far removed from his favorite pastime; often he can be found in his garage rebuilding classic and late model vehicles, with the occasional trip to the drag strip to test his work.

State Licenses

He is a licensed engineer in the states of Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
