(Originally prepared and presented at an collision reconstruction seminar given at the NHMRC Road Accident Research Unit (RARU), Adelaide, Australia in May 1995 in response to a question by the RARU Director, Dr. A. Jack McLean, as to the accuracy of computerized collision reconstruction techniques)

The accuracy of any reconstruction technique, including computerized techniques, is highly dependent on a number of variables:

Accident Evidence

Available Specifications

Collision reconstruction techniques

Damage-based reconstruction techniques

Trajectory-based reconstruction techniques
