July 7, 2016—At an open board meeting in April in Seattle, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) held a presentation from the SCRS Education Committee focusing on the flow of energy through the modern vehicle. 

On Wednesday, the SCRS released a video of highlights from the presentation. The video demonstrates how the vehicle structure acts in a collision, the transfer of energy, the steps of analyzing damage from that energy, and making 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," SCRS Chairman Andy Dingman said in a statement. "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."

Additional presentation videos can be found on the SCRS YouTube Channel
