Troy Mithrush will present his latest research at the 2019 SAE World Congress in Detroit.
Tire marks on the road at the scene of a car crash are important pieces of physical evidence for a forensic engineer asked to determine how fast a car was going. Using the critical curve speed (CCS) formula, it is sometimes possible to calculate a car’s speed based on two elements from the scene: the tire-to-road friction and the curvature of the tire marks. However, uncertainty in determining the curvature of the tire marks translates into uncertainty in the calculated speeds. On April 10th, Troy Mithrush presents his study of how uncertainty is related to how tire marks are measured.
The article was published on April 2nd in the SAE Technical Paper, and his presentation is at 2:30 PM on Wednesday, April 10th, at the Cobo Center in Detroit.
