Example of an accident reconstruction with Virtual Crash software and the mathematical simulation of this accident situation at intersection

  • 1 Polytechnic University of Tirana, Albania


The paper presents an example of an accident situation using Virtual Crash software in the reconstruction of a high-speed sideimpact accident of two vehicles at intersection. The simulation allowed estimating the velocity of the vehicles at the moment of collision and the determination of the location of the vehicles. We also focus on the result of the mathematical simulation of this accident situation at intersection when two vehicles and two pedestrians take part in this collision
