Topics for the Advanced Accident Investigation:

Building on knowledge from Intermediate Crash Investigations, this class covers expansions on drag factor, kinematics, and introduces collinear and angular momentum, crush, and energy equations. This is the last of three accident classes designed to prepare the student for reconstruction courses.

Required equipment and materials include: Pen and mechanical pencil, scientific calculator, scratch paper, engineer ruler, 2 colored pencils, scissors, and graph paper.
