Advanced Damage Analysis is part of De Montfort University FdSc in forensic collision investigation.
The number of collisions where emergency braking marks are found and from which a speed can be calculated are now rare making speed from damage calculations more relevant. This module builds on the earlier Damage Analysis module to give the student an in depth knowledge of finding speed from momentum and CRASH3.
Speed change from crush damage and momentum including how momentum and the CRASH3 models 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
Classroom based with further project work for those following the FdSc programme.
General tools include a scientific calculator. We recommend any Casio with a 'Natural Display'. You will need access to a computer running the AiDamage (or similar) software program.
Your course tutors will help you with your studies during the course. They will mark and comment on your final exam and coursework.
