Motorcycle collisions is part of De Montfort University FdSc in forensic collision investigation.
Motorcycle collisions are common throughout the UK and we tend not to look at them in any specific detail during introductory modules. Here we take our first in depth look at the subject.
The module reviews the various papers that look at the coefficient of friction of upright motorcycles and those which have fallen on their side.
The module looks at the various ways in which the change in velocity can be calculated from the shortening of the wheelbase of the machine.
There is a general discussion on the handling characteristics of motorcycles including high-side and low-side, wobble and weave.
There is a field day during the module during which we will crash motorcycles into a vehicle.
We assume that you hold a UCPD, City & Guilds or equivalent in forensic road collision investigation. We recommend you have studied Applied maths to get the most from this module.
Some of the maths will not have been covered at UCPD level but will have been covered in Applied maths. There are no per-reads for this module.
During COVID and due to social distancing measures this module is being run as an 8 weeks distance learning module with one day fieldwork at the airfield.
Your joining instructions list any specific requirements. General tools include a scientific calculator. We recommend any Casio with a 'Natural Display'. You will require wet weather clothing for the field day..
Your tutors will help you with your studies during the module. They will mark and comment on your final exam and coursework.
