Abstract:

This research validates the accuracy and efficacy of Sherlock, a recently developed program that estimates the area of origin (AO) of an impact pattern. Sherlock is an open-access, web-based software that conducts trajectory analysis by using the tangent metho...

Abstract:

Peroxidase-based reagents that react with whole blood typically undergo internal quality control tests for reactivity prior to their use at a crime scene. This study presents a synthetic polymer alternative to using whole mammalian blood as a luminol reagent c...

Abstract:

The use of laser scanners and other three-dimensional (3D) technologies to document and analyze bloodstains has been the subject of previous papers, especially where area of origin analysis is concerned. Both HemoSpat and FARO Scene are commonly found in liter...

Abstract:

Society’s fascination with forensic science has been on an increase for many years. Evidence of this is supported by the development of many tertiary education forensic science programs and the continued increase in student numbers within these programs. In th...

Abstract:

This study investigates the chemiluminescent reaction of whole ovine blood with a luminol solution in a time and dilution series. Replicate samples of both fresh and dried certified pathogen-free ovine blood were prepared and diluted. Seven dilution conditions...

Abstract:

This study explores the use of forensic synthetic blood substitute (FBS) for impact pattern simulation and area of origin estimation. Ten impact patterns were created at a known origin using the FBS and were analyzed by groups of undergraduate students partici...

Abstract:

This work investigates the spreading dynamics of three candidate sol–gel solutions, of ranging viscosities, surface tensions and densities, and compares them with water and two commercial blood substitute products. Droplets were created with different sizes (1...

Abstract:

This work explores the crown formation on a thin film of sheep's blood. Three weapons - a hammer head, a simulating baseball bat, and a metal bar - were used to impact blood on fibreboard, cloth, and sponge. Impact velocity was controlled by a custom impact de...

Abstract:

Solution–gelation chemistry has promising applications in forensic synthetic blood substitute development. This research offers a silicon-based sol–gel approach to creating stable materials that share similar rheological properties to that of whole human blood...

Abstract:

This article explores the integration of innovative technologies into forensic science training initiatives and their effect on student engagement and depth of learning. Novel situation-oriented teaching practices were researched and implemented with the goal...
