This book is divided into eight parts. Part 1 presents the cohesive soils was demonstrated by Pincent and Tchocothe in vehicle components. Their critical performance in accidents soils subjected to different accelerations. The shear Presented are motion fundamentals, tyre forces, braking, the tests were performed after stopping the centrifuge. In handling of vehicles. Part 3 treats accident avoidance when the centrifuge was stopped, reducing the shear collision can be avoided, passing manoeuvres and driver shear strength while the centrifuge was in operation in analysis are discussed. Both non-rotating and rotating presents some results of the first tests conducted with a occupant dynamics, human tolerances to impact loading, and computer based collision reconstruction are discussed. Part 5 presents a brief summary of existing federal safety standards and ongoing defects investigations. Part 6 is concerned with accident investigation factors and a discussion of their relative importance to accident reconstruction. Part 7 examines the application of reconstruction fundamentals to actual collisions. Details are given of several cases covering all major aspects of reconstruction. Part 8 contains special studies. Included are findings about accident statistics and a brief description of the desirable profile of an expert witness; courtroom hints are included. (TRRL)
