Welcome to the PC-Brake Accident Reconstruction practitioner forum. Anyone can post a message. Have a question about a case? Want to share your ideas to help others? Perhaps you have a comment? The PC-Brake Accident Reconstruction practitioner forum is where accident reconstruction is discussed.
The latest and improved MARC1-2015 is out now. During 2015 the cost is $295.00. After that it will be $795.00.
The latest changes were made to Module X8 where I included the ability to evaluate and run "crash-tests-on-paper" at low speeds with coefficient of restitution. For more detail see my latest Short Paper where I analyze a 12 mph inline rear-end crash test between a Mercedes and a VW. In the future I will analyze more low speed crash tests to get a better understanding of the actual crush energies and stiffness data involved. With proper data, MARC1-W4 predicts impact speeds in low speed crashes including braking fairly well.
I hope to see some of you at the IPTM special problems sessions, and may be at the Las Vegas Crash Conference.
