Item description for Low-Speed Automobile Accidents: Accident Reconstruction and Occupant Kinematics, Dynamics, and Biomechanics by Alan J. Watts...

If you have clients who have been involved in a low-speed collision you understand the hassle caused by such accidents. The insurance companies can refuse to cover injuries because there is doubt that injuries are sustained at such low speeds; this is especially true if there is little or no vehicle damage. However, the extent of damage to the cars does not indicate the extent of injury-causing loads on the passengers in the cars, particularly at low speeds.

This book, now in its third edition, studies the science of reconstructing and analyzing low-speed (0-20mph) automobile accidents. You will read about analyzing accidents that result in little or no vehicle damage; how, even at low speeds, the final position of the vehicles can look as if the accident occurred at a much higher speed than the driver claims; and occupent kinematics.

With this book you will also receive a silent video that includes film clips and animations to demonstrate the principles outlines in this book. No other textbook covers the subject of low speed automobile accident reconstruction as accurately and comprehensively.

Reviews - What do customers think about Low-Speed Automobile Accidents: Accident Reconstruction and Occupant Kinematics, Dynamics, and Biomechanics?

Could have been a lot better. Much left out about subject.  Oct 27, 1999
A basic physics approach to low speed impact of automobiles. Author uses a strange definition of coefficient of restitution which is negative instead of positive. Little experimental data is offerred and there is no review of the current low speed impact volunteer data which is the current basis for much opinion. The free video is some graphic computer artist's crude representation of a rear end collision and depicts unrealistic vehicle, seat and occupant kinematics. However, for a rank beginner you will be exposed to the basic physics of this type of collision. For a followup you will need to read various SAE papers to really understand the practical realities of the relationship between such a collision and the outcomes.
