Lug Stud Analysis and Forensic Application


When protruding Lug Studs sideswipe the side of another vehicle, specific geometric patterns appear. What happens when two wheels sideswipe during an accident?

The resulting patterns may be analyzed and attributed to vehicle speeds and behavior before during and after an accident.

Kineticorp’s Will Bortles discusses his research and explains the implementation his findings have on the world of Accident Reconstruction.
