GPSTC Represented at WREX 2016 in Orlando

Instructors Bruce Stanford and Chuck Odom of the Georgia Police Academy and Truman Boyle of the Georgia State Patrol, traveled to Orlando, Florida the week of May 2, 2016 to conduct motorcycle crash testing for the World Reconstruction Exposition. WREX 2016 was a crash exposition for accident reconstructionist in both law enforcement and engineering fields. There were over 750 attendees from no less than ten countries.

The crash test featured in Boyle’s video below simulated a vehicle experiencing rotation after an eccentric collision with a motorcycle. After the test crash, the instructors then presented a method of calculating change in velocity, then impact speed by calculating mass moment of inertia.
