Traffic accident investigation manual by J. Stannard Baker( Book )

5 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a manual for those involved in traffic accident investigation. Before 1925, systematic traffic accident investigation was practically unknown, but with the advent of the automobile and the resultant prominence of traffic deaths in everyday life, concerned persons and organizations took measures to minimize traffic danger. Accident investigation has become progressively more sophisticated. By reconstructing accidents, determining fault, and obtaining convictions, drivers are urged to be more responsible. This book covers 13 major topics, with specific instructions for various tasks, explaining how each task can better serve the whole of the investigation. These tasks include, for example, taking photos, examining vehicle damage, making sense of involved persons' differing accounts of what happened, questioning witnesses, gauging the mental and emotional state of involved persons and witnesses, measuring the scene, interpreting skidmarks and other bits of evidence, and drawing situation maps. It also elaborates on laws, police and administrative functions, standards, and more. Numerous exhibits, including diagrams, and photographs with captions.

Traffic accident reconstruction by Lynn B Fricke( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume deals with 17 major issues arising from traffic accident reconstruction. The product of numerous individuals experienced in accident reconstruction, the manual is geared toward data interpretation and directed toward engineers and people with technical backgrounds. The manual relies heavily on mathematics to interpret how an accident occurred, as is consistent with the progression from data collection to reconstruction. Real world accident cases are used to illustrate each topic whenever possible. Beginning with an overview of the process of traffic accident reconstruction, the manual discusses causes and contributing factors in traffic accidents; mathematics and physics used in traffic accident reconstruction, basic motion equations; understanding vehicle behavior in collisions; drag factor and coefficient of friction; perception and reaction in traffic accidents; speed estimates for vehicles that fall, flip, or vault; momentum applications; work, energy, and speed from damage in traffic accidents; steering overcorrection in traffic accidents; reconstruction of motorcycle traffic accidents; understanding occupant behavior in vehicle collisions; vehicle-pedestrian accident reconstruction; reconstruction of heavy truck accidents; derivations of equations; and the use of computers in traffic accident reconstruction

A windtunnel investigation of jets exhausting into a crossflow by Lynn B Fricke( Book )

3 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A low speed wind tunnel test of a four-foot diameter circular plate model with up to three exhausting jets was conducted to determine surface static pressure distributions, jet paths, and jet decay characteristics in the presence of a crossflow. Data were obtained for the one-jet configuration with the jet exiting at a number of angles to the plate and at various velocity ratios and sideslip angles. Two-jet arrangements were tested with the jets exiting normal to the plate for three different spacings between the two jets and at a number of velocity ratios and sideslip angles. Three-jet configuration data were obtained with the jets exiting normal to the plate for a number of velocity ratios and sideslip angles. As a result of this investigation, several conclusions are deduced pertaining to the interaction of multiple jets exhausting into a crossflow. The test model, instrumentation, test procedure, and reduction and accuracy of the test data are discussed in this volume. A summary and discussion of the test results are also presented
