This engineering text is directed toward Forensic Engineers who are interested in determining the causal factors of bicycle accidents. The author, a Professional Engineer and competitive cyclist and triathlete, has organized the engineering literature for this purpose. James M. Green is the author of Bicycle Accident Reconstruction for the Forensic Engineer ( avg rating, 1 rating, 0 reviews, published ), Bicycle /5(3). Jim Green is a Professional Engineer with over 30 years in reconstructing bicycle accidents. He continues to race competitively at the national level in triathlons. His company has utilized laboratory data, engineering literature and actual accident reconstructions to bring a level of confidence to the causal factors of bicycle accidents. Learn motorcycle accident reconstruction techniques from the experienced authors of this book. The special mechanics of riding a motorcycle and the way a motorcycle performs mechanically are explained in layperson's's terms.

Bicycle Accident Reconstruction (hereafter, BAR) fails for both types of readers because Green does not understand the principles of physics that he thinks that he is using. Engineers would discover this by reading BAR, while attorneys would be (have been, on the evidence) mislead because they have no greater understanding of the laws of physics than has Green. I have used the book Bicycle Accident Reconstruction for the Forensic Engineer with Jim in a very difficult single rider bicycle accident with no witness and an alleged negligent assembly claim. The book is as excellent as Jim. It is a must read for cases involving bicycle forensic engineering. In the 19th chapter of his book "Bicycle Accident Reconstruction For The Forensic Engineer", a table of vehicle-bicycle collision data is presented to us. The analysis was done on the field by Rusty Haight and Jerry Eubanks who set up an experiment in which different kinds of motor vehicles were used to strike an exemplar bicycle with a dummy cyclist at various speeds. The purpose of this paper is to describe the techniques utilized in defining the causal factors of bicycle accidents. The author has reconstructed at least bicycle accidents in the last 15 years, and our firm, Resource Engineering, has spent a good deal of manpower formulating the engineering dynamics involved in these accidents.

Mr. Green is a seriously qualified engineer and his book is well written and very specific in illuminating this intriguing may be the best forensic engineer in the 4/5. Learn motorcycle accident reconstruction techniques from the experienced authors of this book. The special mechanics of riding a motorcycle and the way a motorcycle performs mechanically are explained in layperson's's terms. Quasi-motorcycles and compared anr contrasted with standard motorcycles to aquaint the reader with their similarities and differences.   Bicycle Crash Reconstruction - Expert Article In this article, Highway Engineering expert, Lance Robson, P.E., discusses the process of reconstructing a bicycle crash. Bicycle Crash Reconstruction involves the application of scientific and engineering principles to determine how the incident started and what initiated the loss of control.   Booktopia has Bicycle Accident Reconstruction for the Forensic Engineer by James M.
