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.
• 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.
