Richard E. Stogran, P.E., CFEI, CVFI
Consulting and Forensic Engineer
Since childhood, Mr. Stogran has possessed a desire to take things apart to figure out why they worked. It was when he destroyed the heating element of the hot water heater at his parents home that his mother decided to steer 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 new crushing lines to alternative liquid fuel systems and environmental compliance equipment.
Since joining ED&T in 2011, Mr. Stogran has been consulting in the areas of vehicle accident reconstruction, vehicle control systems analysis, fire investigation, mechanical system component failures 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 wrenching on one of his several Ford Mustangs, with the occasional trip to the drag strip to test his work. He also enjoys rebuilding classic and late model vehicles. Mr. Stogran happily resides in Orlando, Florida with his wife.
He is a licensed engineer in the states of Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
