Pedestrian collisions is part of De Montfort University FdSc in forensic collision investigation.
On occasions it is possible to calculate the speed of a vehicle from the distance a pedestrian, pedal cyclist or motorcyclist is thrown. It is also possible to estimate for how long a pedestrian was in the road. This module looks at the techniques and models for making these calculations.
The mechanics and mathematical modeling of pedestrian and pedal cycle collisions including Searle, Hague, Smith and Evans, Wood, Hill and Field. The module also covers pedestrian coefficients of friction, pedal cycles, collision datasets and conspicuity.
You will need to hold a CertHE or equivalent qualification. Some of the maths required for this module is taught in the Applied maths module.
You will need to be comfortable using Excel to the extent that you can construct equations and draw grahs to be able to complete the module.
The module lasts for 8 weeks and is mainly delivered by distance learning with a one week residential module when we will carry out group work, cover the throw modules and carry out field tests at the airfield.
Your tutors will help you with your studies during the module. There is one phase test (undertaken during the residential week) and a two week project.
This module is part of De Montfort university FdSc in forensic road collision investigation.
Successful standalone students will be awarded an AiTS pass certificate.
The FdSc starts in September of each year. Apply through AiTS. If you wish to take this module without registering with the university you may do so however no university accreditation will be give. To take as a standalone check the course calendar for the next presentation and contact AiTS.
