ADVANCED COMMERCIAL VEHICLE CRASH INVESTIGATION

Advanced Commercial Vehicle Crash Investigation
This course is designed to further enhance the knowledge and skills you acquired in IPTM's Inspection and Investigation of Commercial Vehicle Crashes course. You will learn how to conduct a detailed analysis of commercial motor vehicle dynamics and its application to traffic crash reconstruction.
During this course, you will analyze the ABS air brake system by conducting tests to determine average air chamber pressure. You will also be shown how to determine the limits of axle weights based upon the location of center mass, as well as static-quasistatic and dynamic roll propensities.
Topics include:
Kinetic energy - determining delta-V in central impacts
ABS - Air Brake Systems
Speed analysis using gear reduction ratios
Low speed - high speed off-tracking
Dynamic roll propensities
Axle weight distribution - using equilibrium and free body diagrams
Liquid load analysis
You should bring a scientific calculator and, if available, an engineers scale along with a 30/60/90 degree triangle.

Space is available on a first come basis and registrations should be faxed to 609-407-6717 unless otherwise noted please. File is in PDF format. Registration Form
