Construction Accident Recreation

This animation was created by Aloe Design for court case use. The video depicts a freshly set concrete structure having structural failure under its own weight. The structure had “crane lift anchors” placed too close to the edge of the structure (where it shows 6.5″ mark). This caused the concrete to break when too much load was placed on the anchors. It then fell and damaged the operator. The concrete was animated by a custom physics simulation which was created to match eyewitness accounts.
