Written for the reconstructionist, attorney, automotive engineer, or other interested professional, this brand new edition examines the science of reconstructing and analyzing an automobile accident. Learn how to analyze accidents and judge speed from the final position of the vehicle. Also covered are topics such as sideswipe collisions, rollovers, calculations of collision timing and accelerations and measuring vehicle crush, among many others. Dr. Alan Watts explains basic concepts of physics, and then applies them to accident reconstruction. The text will be readily understood by any reader with a basic understanding of accident reconstruction; however, full details and equation derivations are provided for those with either higher technical education or a wish to more fully understand the issues. Topics include: General material loading responses, Vehicle crush response for impacts into rigid barriers, Crush responses in two-vehicle, low speed collisions, Computer modeling methods, Energetics of collisions, Bumper behavior, Integrated hits and other effects, Interesting mechanical models, Comparisons between the CRASH3 and the POD models, Proper solutions to various problems, Rollovers and side trips, Mounting and surviving, Specific examples and animations, Accident reconstruction definitions and other notes
