FAQ Knowledge Base
This page presents examples of techniques or modeling approaches that can be used to simulate various real-world scenarios. Each example may contain links to download simulation movie files, excerpts from Technical Newsletters, detailed tutorials or even case files to try out in your own HVE or HVE-2D software.

||EDSMAC4 Median Barrier Collision Simulation
This example illustrates the use of EDSMAC4 for simulating barrier collisions. Although there are several approaches, this example illustrates the best approach - in terms of both the mechanics of the collision and the visualization.
||Motorcycle Collision Visualization
As we made quite clear in the June 2000 Technical Newsletter article Newton on Motorcycles, it is unwise to attempt a mathematical reconstruction of the collision phase of a vehicle vs. motorcycle collision - if your goal is to calculate the speed of the motorcycle. However, there is much that can be done in motorcycle crash reconstruction, and this example shows you how to use HVE to perform such a reconstruction. Although there are several approaches, this example illustrates the best approach - in terms of both the mechanics of the collision and the visualization.
