  • Calculating the speed of vehicles involved in collisions
  • Photographing collision scenes
  • Interpreting physical evidence found at collision scenes
  • Measuring techniques
  • Drawing scale diagrams

Technical Investigation

Focuses on the technical principles and procedures of reconstruction in the following areas:

  • Extensive review of vehicle damage, including lamp and tire examination
  • Analysis of physical evidence
  • Critical curve speeds and yaw equations
  • Principles of momentum
  • Analysis of time/distance/acceleration relationships
  • Airborne equations
  • Human kinetics
