SOME ISSUES OF THE BIOMECHANICS WHEN A PERSON FALLS OUT FROM THE BODY OF A MOVING CAR
We have analyzed the fatal cases of the victims falling out of the body of a moving car in the conditions of the sharp turn or emergency braking. Biomechanical aspects of this type of transportation injury were studied. An equality was established that defines the conditions necessary for maintaining the balance of the human in the car body during a sharp turn of the car. Also we propose an equation for determining the amount of energy released during the collision of the human with the road surface after the falling out of a car on a curved or straight section of the road.

DEVELOPMENT OF FORENSIC-BOTANICAL EXPERTISE WITH DENDROCHRONOLOGICAL ANALYSIS IN THE REPUBLIC OF BELARUS
Illegal forest management is one of the most difficult for investigation encroachments on the natural environment. In this regard, the most important stage of proof procedure is to schedule a complex of forensic expertises, the leading place among which, as practice shows, is taken by forensic-botanical expertise with dendrochronological analysis (hereinafter referred to as FBE DA). The execution of FBE DA allows the reliable determination of the age of the tree, the time of failure/cutting (year and season), the category of living condition, the place of growth, the belonging of individual elements of wood to a single tree, the sequence of damages inflicted to the tree, etc. In the work the review of the basic results in the field of forensic dendrochronology, gathered by the state institution «Scientific and Practical Centre of the State Forensic Examination Committee of the Republic of Belarus».
