HEAVY TRUCK & BUS ACCIDENT RECONSTRUCTION
Accident reconstruction of heavy truck and bus accidents requires knowledge specific to heavy vehicles. At Momentum Engineering Corp. (MEC), our engineers have taken specialized courses ranging from heavy vehicle design to reconstruction of heavy truck rollover accidents. We possess a thorough knowledge of air brake systems, vehicle components and heavy vehicle dynamics. In addition, we are trained in heavy vehicle safety and operation.
The engineers at MEC have performed full-scale brake tests of heavy trucks, as well as tear-downs and failure investigations of the brake systems. We have the equipment and training to download the Engine Control Module (ECM) or black box, found on many heavy trucks. And we have the specialized software to perform sophisticated computer simulations of heavy truck and bus accidents.
An example of a heavy truck collision analysis is shown below:
