Feature-based analysis of bloodstain patterns

A key task in the analysis of bloodstain pattern analysis is to identify the mechanism by which the stains were created.   Examples include impact, gunshot, castoff, and expiration.  This webinar

Pattern Evidence Research in CSAFE-An Update

CSAFE is a NIST Center of Excellence in Forensic Science. A large portion of CSAFE’s research portfolio is on what is known as pattern evidence, which encompasses any evidence that

Determining the region of origin of blood spatter patterns considering fluid dynamics and statistical uncertainties

Trajectory reconstruction in bloodstain pattern analysis is currently performed by assuming that blood drop trajectories are straight along directions inferred from stain inspection. Recently, several attempts have been made at

A data set of bloodstain patterns for teaching andresearch in bloodstain pattern analysis: Gunshot backspatters

This is a data set of blood spatter patterns scanned at high resolution, generated in controlled experiments. The spatter patterns were generated with a rifle or a handgun with varying

A data set of bloodstain patterns for teaching and research in bloodstain pattern analysis: Impact beating spatters

This is a data set of 61 blood spatter patterns scanned at high resolution, generated by controlled impact events corresponding to forensic beating situations. The spatter patterns were realized with

Hydrodynamics of back spatter by blunt bullet gunshot with a link to bloodstain pattern analysis

A theoretical model describing the blood spatter pattern resulting from a blunt bullet gunshot is proposed. The predictions are compared to experimental data acquired in the present work. This hydrodynamic
