Russell Gish will present his latest research at the 2019 SAE World Congress in Detroit.
Car crash tests performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) generate a lot of data, most of which is not used in a typical crash reconstruction by a forensic engineer.
In 2016, Ross Hunter published a paper on how car collision speeds can be calculated using the detailed force-displacement data from NHTSA crash tests; on April 9th, Dr. Russell Gish presents the latest development of this new method of analysis, which could eventually be used to estimate speeds with greater precision in a wider variety of crashes.
His article was published on April 2nd in the SAE Technical Paper, and his presentation is at 3:45 PM on Tuesday, April 9th, at the Cobo Center in Detroit.
