Jack C. Debes
Jack C. Debes, Ph.D. studied at the University of California San Diego in the department of Applied Mechanical Engineering Sciences where he earned his bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees in bioengineering. He was then a post-doctoral fellow at the Hillenbrand Center for Biomedical Engineering and served as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University, focusing his research in the areas of soft tissue biomechanics and biomaterials for orthopedic and cardiovascular applications. In his pursuit for a better surgical material to anchor ligaments to bone, he became interested in hydroxyapatite—the naturally occurring mineral in bone. This led him to Interpore-Cross in Irvine, California where, as Research Manager, he developed products for the surgical repair of bones. Applications were applied to dentistry and orthopedics, especially in the spine. In order to develop replacement materials for the body, one must first understand the mechanical properties of the natural parts and what stresses are required to damage them. Dr. Debes met Ken Obenski in 1998 and became interested in applying his knowledge of biomechanics to injury analysis and accident reconstruction. Dr. Debes has published in the areas of accident reconstruction, biomechanics and biomaterials and serves as a consultant and expert witness at John Fiske Brown Associates, Inc. in Solana Beach, California.More About Jack C.

This book details the mechanics of riding a motorcycle and motorcycle performance. Rider safety considerations and human factors issues such as conspicuity, evasive action, warning to the rider, and rider experience and training are discussed in detail. Quasi-motorcycles are compared and contrasted with standard motorcycles to acquaint the reader with their similarities and differences. Techniques and methods for reconstructing motorcycle accidents are covered in detail and a wide variety of example cases are given. Legal issues of motorcycle use are explained with extensive case studies and examples and include topics such as helmet laws, negligence, laws governing accidents, warnings, roadway defects, motorcycle defects, injury to passengers, and Dram Shop liability in DUI cases. This edition includes accident cause factors and identification of countermeasures, commonly known as “The Hurt Report,” on CD-ROM.
