Motorcycle, Pedestrian, and Other Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are often more difficult to analyze and reconstruct than other motor vehicle accidents.

The concept of “crush” or damage to energy-absorbing portions of cars and light trucks can be used to determine speeds in a collision. While there have been some instrumented motorcycle crashes, the concept of “crush” is not directly applicable since there are no corresponding energy-absorbing structures.
 
In addition, the front and rear wheel brakes of most motorcycles can be applied independently, and maximum braking levels depend greatly on rider skill.
 
Pedestrian accidents can also be difficult to analyze due to the lack of data in many cases. The same careful attention to detail and basic engineering concepts apply to these and other vehicle accidents.
 
Other accidents. The engineers at 3 Axis Engineering have also been involved in analyzing and reconstructing accidents involving trains, ATVs, mopeds, farm equipment and animals, and other ground transportation means.
