Title:Automotive Failure Analysis:
How They Crash, How They Break

Thursday, May 31, 2018

1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

This presentation will discuss classical accident reconstruction and introduce otherless known (and sometimes misunderstood) techniques. Types of useful data and results achievable from accident reconstruction are presented. The performance of vehicle components will also be addressed. The meaning of the terms "failure," "broken," and "defect" are contrasted. The failure analysis of various vehicle parts is explored, with emphasis on techniques and determination of sequence-of-events. Finally, two short examples demonstrate how accident reconstruction ("how they crash") and failure analysis ("how they break") complement each other to fully
explain the cause of an event.

Speakers: James K. Sprague, PH.D. P.E. and Julius M. Roberts, P.E.
