SCRS Education Committee Presents Video on Energy Flow Through Vehicle Structures

Prosser, Washington, July 6, 2016 – In April 2016, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) held an open board meeting in Seattle, WA which included a presentation from the SCRS Education Committee led by committee chairman Kye Yeung. The topic of the presentation focused on the flow of energy through the modern vehicle. The video below summarizes the presentation highlights, demonstrating how the vehicle structure acts in a collision, the transfer of energy, the steps of analyzing damage caused by such energy transfer and defining a repair plan.

“One of the objectives for our Education Committee is to help develop material that educates our membership – and the industry at large – on technical aspects that can improve their business both short term and long term,” shared SCRS Chairman Andy Dingman. “Presentations such as the one in April and the subsequent video are developed with the hope that repairers can use them in their business to expand understanding of the steps we must take to restore our customers’ vehicles.”
