Mr. Andrecovich has expertise in the fields of accident reconstruction and impact and injury biomechanics. He has provided accident reconstruction and vehicle dynamics analyses of accidents involving passenger vehicles, light-duty trucks, motorcycles, and buses. He has experience in the reconstruction of complex accident situations including front, rear, and side high-speed collisions, low-speed collisions, pole/guard rail impacts, and impacts involving pedestrians and cyclists.
Mr. Andrecovich's accident reconstruction analyses are performed through the use of conventional techniques and computer simulation of vehicle collisions that utilize time-based energy and momentum models. He is proficient in imaging data from Event Data Recorders (EDR).
Mr. Andrecovich's current areas of focus in injury biomechanics include vehicle related impact biomechanics and occupant kinematics, orthopaedic research, ballistic injury, and sports equipment evaluation testing. He has conducted a variety of biomechanical studies using both human and surrogate models to evaluate injury causation and injury prevention.
Prior to joining Exponent, Mr. Andrecovich was a Research Assistant in the Biomedical Engineering Department at Wayne State University (WSU). While at WSU, he was primarily responsible for the planning and execution of biomechanical studies in collaboration with the orthopaedic surgery residents of the Detroit Medical Center (DMC). Mr. Andrecovich was also part of the Orthopaedic Research Committee that handled research development between WSU Bioengineering and DMC Orthopaedics Departments.
While at WSU, Mr. Andrecovich worked on projects for both the United States Department of Defense and the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defense. He has been involved in penetrating ballistics trauma studies evaluating long bone fracture via direct and indirect mechanisms, and the effects of velocity and mass on the penetration of frangible surrogate projectiles (FSPs) into the human neck. Additionally, he has also evaluated non-penetrating injuries, investigating blunt ballistics impacts to the skull associated with less-lethal munitions.
Mr. Andrecovich also has expertise in the field of sports equipment testing. He also operated and managed the Sports Injury Biomechanics Laboratory at WSU, where he designed and implemented testing protocols and procedures to evaluate the efficacy of sporting equipment injury mitigation.
