U.S. Forensic would like to welcome Matthew Ivory to our team of mechanical engineers and accident reconstructionists. Mr. Ivory obtained his Bachelors of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology from the New Mexico State University. He is a registered Professional Engineer in Texas. His primary experience includes accident reconstruction and automotive mechanical failure analysis.
Mr. Ivory has designed and conducted crash tests for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Federal Highway Safety Administration, and the U.S. Department of State. His forensic experience includes vehicle accident reconstruction, biomechanical analysis, and human factor analysis. He has evaluated and tested restraint systems, vehicle components, amusement park rides, and helmets. Steering columns Loads and Upper Extremity Motions during Low Impact Speed Rear-End Collisions, authored by Mr. Ivory and his colleagues, is featured in Rear Impact, Rollover, and Side Impacts, a technical publication of the Society of Automotive Engineers.
In addition to accident reconstruction experience, Mr. Ivory has also designed and manufactured fiberglass vessels. He has conducted investigations to determine the cause of manufacturing equipment failures and provided maintenance and repair recommendations.
Mr. Ivory is a member of the Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Task Force 13, the Southwestern Association of Technical Accident Investigation (SAT AI), the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS), and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
His research was published in the Society of Automotive Engineer’s Real Impact, Rollover, and Side Impacts Edition of 2011 (SP-2303) “Steering Column Loads and Upper Extremity Motions During Low-Speed Rear-End Collisions.” In 2010, Mr. Ivory’s research on “Brake Pedal Response and Occupant Kinematics During Low Speed Rear-End Collisions,” was published in the Accident Reconstruction 2010 Edition of the Society of Automotive Engineers Publication (SP-2267).
