Who Hit the Cat: A Review of Accident Analysis Models & Methods

Accidents happen, a fact that not many can argue, whether its aviation, nuclear, maritime, and so forth. A topic that is more likely argued is accident analysis and causation, choosing an analysis model can be seen as choosing a camera lenses that gives a different outlook of the causation of the occurrence. Each lens has it positives and negatives, the difficulty comes in choosing the right lens (or group of lenses) for the right occurrence.

Engine damage assessment

I am reading an accident report and I find a discrepancy in the engine damage assessment.

If someone can give me an opinion on the engine damage at impact, it would be very helpful.

I need to know if the engines were developing sufficient torque on impact or were at idle/damaged.

Thanks.

The report can be downloaded from here
