Collision Engineering Associates is capable of studying some simple occupant and pedestrian motion during a crash as part of our experience and accident reconstruction training. Â When a more detailed analysis of these issues is required, we often consult with specialists within the field of biomechanics, not only for their expertise, but also for their ability to use occupant simulation to examine the dynamics of a crash.
