Damage Analysis is part of De Montfort University FdSc in forensic collision investigation.
It is possible to calculate the speed of a vehicle from either momentum, energy or by comparison with certain databases. This module looks at all three methods.
The module is currently being redeveloped for delivery from Sept' 2022. For existing content see the programme handbook.
Speed change from crush damage, momentum EES and EBS including how momentum and energy can be used in tandem to solve a wider range of practical problems. Closing speeds, force balancing and post impact predictions are covered in the module.
This module assumes that you have studied ENGS1017 Applied maths.
Blended learning with a mixture of classroom and distance learning.
General tools include a scientific calculator. We recommend any Casio with a 'Natural Display'. You will need access to a computer running Crush analysis software. If you do not have access to such software, we can provide a copy of the AiDamage software for the duration of your studies.
Your tutors will help you with your studies during the module. They will mark and comment on your coursework.
