Accident analysis – Calculation of the impact speeds
For the professionals in the field of traffic accident analysis we provide a very flexible application to calculate the impact velocities in a graphical environment. All parameters are designed object oriented and can be changed using the mouse pointer.
This online application calculates the three conservation principles of classical mechanics: Conservation of linear momentum, energy and angular momentum. This web based application uses these conservation rules to calculate in a graphical environment the impact speeds for the vehicles involved in the collision. The calculation is based on the post-crash velocities, the energy transformed into deformation work and the (change of the) angular velocities of the vehicles.
This application is still under development based on a well known PC software called ‘WinKol’. Description of Winkol in German language.
Please note: Vehicle are in draft mode for development purposes and will be replaced with hi-res models.
