Concepts from Physics and Mathematics Applied to Traffic Crash Reconstruction
by Andrew S. Rich

This collection of articles delves into various areas of crash reconstruction. The first article provides you with a solid foundation for solving systems of equations which you can apply to problems involving conservation of linear momentum, conservation of energy and collinear momentum problems.
As the publication dates of the articles progress, the topics become more complex. In the more recent topics, you will find discussions of the Monte Carlo Method, Equivalent Barrier Speed, Equivalent Energy Speed and delta V.
The book contains the following articles:
  •  Solving Second-Degree and Systems of Equations: Applications to Motor Vehicle Accident Reconstruction (1998)
  • A Three-Point Airborne Trajectory Analysis: An Application of the Derivative (1999)
  • A Special Case in the Conservation of Collinear Momentum (2003)
  • Momentum Revisited (2003)
  • An Introduction to the Monte Carlo Method (2005)
  • EBS and Delta V (2006)
Andrew Rich began his career in law enforcement in 1988 with the Palisades Interstate Parkway Police (PIP) in Northeastern New Jersey. After seven years of service, he was promoted to sergeant and became the officer in charge of the Accident Investigation Unit and the Search and Rescue Unit. Additionally, he programmed the department’s computer systems applications. He was also a part-time investigator for the Bergen County (NJ) Prosecutor’s Office Fatal Accident Investigation Unit (FAIU). In 1999 Sergeant Rich left the PIP to become a detective for the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office (FAIU), where he is presently assigned to investigate and reconstruct serious and fatal collisions on a county-wide basis. Andrew Rich is a member of IPTM’s adjunct faculty, is ACTAR accredited, and is currently completing the last classes necessary for a degree in mechanical engineering at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
