Looking for Short Papers?

PC-Brake ePublishing Short Papers provide the accident reconstruction practitioner with a concise discussion of the engineering equations and limiting factors involved, evaluation of critical input data, and the analysis of actual cases by the use of the MARC 1 computer software.

We hope that our Short Papers will assist the practitioner in better understanding the limitations inherent in any derivation of engineering equations, to properly use critical input data, to more accurately and effectively formulate a case under consideration, to become a better prepared expert in the field of accident reconstruction, and to more effectively utilize the full potential of the MARC 1 computer program. MARC 1 software will be evaluated against existing crash test data.

PC-BRAKE Short Papers will be e-published approximately every three months.
