Crash reconstruction methods based on crush or energy analysis are a valuable tool for identifying an object’s speed. Reconstructionist professionals need to determine the required amount of energy needed to cause the vehicle damage in question. They accomplish this by focusing on the scientific processes that quantify energy.
