K&R Research Foundation’s Program In
Investigative And Forensic Science And Engineering

K&R Research Foundation aspires to serve the claims settlement industry with Dr. Edgel’s expertise and experience.
Its Program in Investigative and Forensic Science and Engineering is a continuation of the program originated by W. Reed Edgel, MS, PE
in the early 1990s. W. Reed Edgel & Associates, Inc. continued the program through 2010. K&R Research Foundation,
founded in 2011, now carries on the program because it offers many opportunities for worthwhile research,
and because it provides funding for other research programs.


Dr. Edgel has distilled the knowledge gained from his decades of practice in Investigative and Forensic Science and Engineering into a series of instruments of service (articles) on various germane subjects. Complementary copies of the preface to the series, which describes it in resplendent detail (ad nauseum) are available by request. Additional articles are available on a per article basis, or get the entire series in book form.
