Investigation of Motorcycle Crashes - Level II  

This course builds on the information covered in Investigation of Motorcycle Crashes and presents a more extensive look at the dynamics and operational principles of the motorcycle and rider. We will teach more advanced mathematical formulas and analytical techniques that will provide you with recognized and accepted values to use during a case analysis.

A group project will introduce a method to determine the maximum tire lean angle and contact patch migration. Additional projects will give you an opportunity to individually analyze the information and utilize the equations in real-world scenarios.

You will receive a manual of applicable information and test data to reference when investigating motorcycle crashes.

Topics Include

  • New motorcycle technology systems
  • Time-Distance, airborne analysis, circular motion
  • Speed in gear analysis
  • Wheelbase reduction information
  • Braking with weight shift
