This 40 hour class builds on laws of conservation of energy and momentum from the Traffic Accident Reconstruction course. Focus is on calculating the speed of autos from crush. The course reviews basic algebra and physics and students learn to analyze crush deformation, procedures for measuring crush and damage profiles, to calculate A, B and G stiffness coefficients, to use 2/4/6-point crush equations to calculate dissipated energy, to reconstruct speeds for head-on/rear-end impacts using a momentum-energy solution and to supplement calculations in oblique angle impacts. Meets the guidelines established by POST and ACTAR.

PREREQUISITES: The student must posses a good  working knowledge of basic algebra; successful completion of Advanced Collision Investigation and Traffic Collision Reconstruction.
