Joseph Olberding, PhD, PE

Senior Engineer

Dr. Olberding is an engineer who assists legal and industrial clients in assessing injury risk and product safety from a biomechanics perspective. He applies mechanics and engineering principles to the human body to answer questions related to how, where, when, or if an injury did or would occur. He analyzes human motion, how forces are applied to the human body, and the forces and mechanisms required to produce specific injuries, with an emphasis on motor vehicle collisions, computational modeling, and pediatric injuries.


Dr. Olberding’s academic background is in computational and experimental soft tissue biomechanics, with a focus on nonlinear elasticity, viscoelasticity, and anisotropy in the context of injury, growth, and remodeling.
