  • English
  • 208 pages
Today analytical computer technologies are widely used by accident reconstructionists. But by the year 2000 the use of animation techniques will be common. Devoted to animation techniques, SP-853 contents include: stiffness parameters for vehicle collision analysis; light truck inertial properties; linear and rotational momentum for computing impact speeds in two-car collisions (LARM); the calculation of motorcycle speeds from sliding distances; determination of collision configurations from vehicle deformation patterns; computer animation - admissibility in the courtroom; computer accident simulation - pretty pictures and the real world; and engineering visualization of vehicle accidents: data sources and methods of production.
