Topics Include:
•Overview of pre-crash data sources and recorded crash pulse data
•Calculating DELTA-v from acceleration data
•Calculating impulse DELTA-v from x/y DELTA-v data
•Calculating pdof from x/y DELTA-v data
•Adjusting x axis DELTA-v to represent impulse DELTA-v
•Single Equation Approach to 360°Momentum Analysis
•Calculating Impact & Post Impact Velocities from CDR data (DELTA-v & pdof)
•Reconciling Pre-Crash and Post-Crash CDR data
•Analyzing CDR data in Context of your Reconstruction
•All case examples used in class are derived from real world crashes

The Advanced Collision Reconstruction Class with CDR Applications is designed to teach class participants how to work with CDR data in their collision reconstruction. This class is not intended as a replacement for the CDR Analyst class, but acts as a supplement to the CDR Analyst class, taking the analysis of the data a step further.

In addition, this class will incorporate a review of pre-crash and DELTA-v data from the currently supported vehicles and may include additional updated CDR info as time allows.

This is an intensive training program. Students should be prepared for evening work assignments to maintain work flow throughout course time.
