The purpose of the paper is to describe a method of computer simulated fall reconstruction. Computer applications that simulate gravity and other physical parameters, such as Knowledge Revolution's Working Model®, allow for falls to be modeled and their dynamics studied. There are two prerequisites for the computer simulation of falls: the development of a dynamic computer manikin and the ability to specify the initial conditions to which the manikin is subjected. Discussion is presented on steps in the development of a two-dimensional dynamic computer manikin. Direction for the determination of initial conditions is illustrated in the context of examples that demonstrate the forensic applications of computer fall simulation.
