Injuries from crashes dwarf all other causes of lost human productivity and reduced quality of life. Society must understand how and why motor vehicle crashes occur. The role of the reconstructionist is to provide this understanding. Contents include: impact genter and restitution coefficients for accident reconstruction; spot weld failure analysis for accident reconstruction; braking and cornering effects with and without anti-lock brakes; ice, ABS, and temperature; intentional acts of violence in motor vehicles: suicide and murder; a method for determining accident specific crush stiffness coefficients; analysis of accelerometer data for use in skid- stop calculations; and photogrammetry and accident reconstruction: experimental results.
