Tom McGaughy

EWI is excited to have Tom McGaughy rejoin our team after a 4 year hiatus.  Tom started his career with EWI in 1987, and held several positions up through 2007, when he left to help expand his wife’s print and web/digital media marketing and production company.  Tom previously worked his way up through the research engineering ranks at EWI, held the role of Business Development Manager for Oil & Gas in the mid and late 1990’s, was Manager of the Lab Services Group until 2003, and was a Technology Consultant through 2007.

He started his new role at EWI in February as the Technology Applications Leader where he will provide technical oversight of the materials testing, failure analysis and experimental fracture mechanics activities, develop R&D initiatives in applied fracture mechanics and structural integrity, and expand and promote EWI’s capabilities in the materials testing, structural integrity and asset management fields.  He will also assist in managing our relationships with key players in the oil & gas industries, where Tom has many years of project development and management experience.

Tom has been active over the years on several Industry and Technical Committees and Standards, having been chairman of the ASTM Task Group on Fracture Toughness Test Methods, Vice Chair of the AWS B4 Committee on Mechanical Testing of Welds, and participated on API committees.  He also has published and presented over 20 papers in major technical publications and conferences. If you would like to speak to Tom directly, he can be reached at 614.688.5054 or by email at
