Scene and Vehicle Documentation Checklists for Rollover Collisions

Scene and Vehicle Documentation Checklists for Rollover Collisions

This article will give you my take on an what you should consider documenting when you inspect the scene and vehicle for reconstructing a rollover collision. To my lawyer friends, these lists are intended to help accident reconstructionists - they are not must-do lists for you to use against us!

Simulating Rollovers in PC-Crash

Simulating Rollovers in PC-Crash

If you missed Parts I or II of this series, here are links to those: Part I and Part II. In this installment, I review the prior literature related to using PC-Crash software to simulate rollover crashes. In a future installment, I will extend this prior literature and present analysis of a full-scale, steering-induced rollover crash test with PC-Crash.

Advanced Reconstruction Methods for the Roll Phase

The following link will take you to a PDF of Chapter 4 from my forthcoming book on RECONSTRUCTING ROLLOVER CRASHES, which I'm developing as a part of the course I teach on this topic. This chapter covers non-constant deceleration rate approaches to the roll phase.
