PC Crash training
PC Crash training is based on the knowledge of the program package and the experience gathered during traffic accident analysis. Not only can you learn how to work in PC Crash program, but u can also learn the specifics of the program usage.
The specifics of the program, which have been noticed during the analyses of many different traffic accidents, can be seen in short time.
PC Crash is program package which, if used, enables to analyze more precisely the elements which determine the causes and the circumstances under which an accident occurred. The program represents the tool which can “quickly” solve very complicated calculations that are impossible to solve by “conventional” methods.
For correct use of PC Crash, it is necessary to possess the expert knowledge in the field of traffic (particularly traffic accident analysis), as well as computer skills. PC Crash represents only the help during traffic accident analysis, and the quality of the input used for the calculation, depends on the quality of the work of an expert and the quality of the evidence in the Court documentation.
By using PC Crash program, it is possible to accurately analyze the parameters determined by “conventional” methods, as well as to determine more precisely the parameters that could not be determined by using ordinary methods.
For example, it is often the case, that in vehicle-pedestrian collision, the marks from the vehicles and/or pedestrian are fixed, as well as the position of the pedestrian, and therefore the “conventional” method for calculating the vehicle speed in the moment of the collision is using the distance of the pedestrian fall. Vehicle speed, calculated this way, can be ±10% accurate, whereas the experimental distance of the pedestrian with average height and weight is taken. On the other hand, PC Crash analyses the other details as well, which are important for the precise analysis of the accident, like the height and the weight of the pedestrian, the mutual position of the vehicle and the pedestrian (which is possible to determine by analysis the injuries), characteristics of the vehicle that participated in the accident (vehicle mass, the number and the weight of passengers that were in the vehicle, geometrical characteristics of the vehicle etc.).
PC Crash can also help to determine the place of the accident, when the marks of the accident are not (or not properly) fixed (i.e. in the case when the marks of the accident are not fixed, but the vehicle damages and final positions are fixed, as well as the direction of the vehicles and the injuries of passengers are known). Based on the vehicle damages, it is possible to determine with great accuracy the mutual position of vehicles in the moment of the accident, and taken into account the injuries of the passengers, it is possible to determine vehicle speed in the moment of the accident. Based on these evidence, by using PC Crash, we can ”find” the place of the accident. Determining the place of the accident in this way takes a lot of time.
