Definition: A mathematical exercise in which a model of a system is established, then the model’s variables are altered to determine the effects on other variables. - The Free Dictionary
Knott Laboratory’s forensic animators and engineers combine their skills to reconstruct vehicular motion during accidents using a physics-based crash simulation software program.
Based on the engineer’s findings, the simulations accurately depict the speed, pitch and yaw of multiple vehicles during an accident. Crash dynamics data from these physics-based simulations are imported directly into our digital 3D scenes to produce high-tech animations that are second to none. Physical accuracy and visual quality combine to form our final animation product, which is a useful tool for communication in the courtroom.
