The science of crash reconstruction enables engineers to determine the most probable scenario for how and why traffic collisions occur. Ongoing research has continually enhanced crash reconstructionists' knowledge of the application of physical laws in this field.

Crash Reconstruction Research: 20 Years of Progress (1988-2007) features 47 papers that have presented significant steps forward, focusing on the following areas within the field of crash reconstruction that have experienced major advances:

  • Planar Impact Mechanics
  • Stiffness Modeling
  • Crash Pulse Analysis
  • Structural Restitution
  • Lateral Deformation and Override/Underride
  • BEV v. Delta-V
  • Rear and Side Impacts
  • Pole Impacts
  • Uncertainty Analysis
  • Pedestrian Crashes
  • Braking Performance
