Course Description


Vehicle crush is one of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted subjects in the collision reconstruction profession. The idea behind determining speeds from crush has always been with regard to determining speed change of automobiles in controlled crash testing environments. This speed change or Delta V is compared to injury causation from which many automotive safety standards are derived. We have adopted these methods of evaluating crush use in criminal and civil legal proceedings with much skepticism.

Although determining the speed of an automobile from crush is important, crush analysis has so many more applications that are just as valuable. Crush analysis may be valuable in areas such as, determining principle direction of force, maximum engagement, occupant kinematics, vehicle direction of travel and much more.

Estimating speeds from crush are subject to heavy scrutiny and are suspect to over or underestimation if proper techniques are not used. This course is designed to illustrate the proper techniques and protocols for crush analysis. Special measuring techniques will be discussed and practiced. Many calculations will be reviewed including but not limited to, Delta V, Principle Direction of Force and Centroid of Damage.

Entry Level Standards:

Students should have completed at minimum the advanced crash investigation or reconstruction and have good math skills with a basic understanding of energy and speed. Students will also need to have the ability to draw scaled diagrams based upon field measurements of accident scenes and vehicle crush.
