Douglas R. Morr
Manager, Columbus Mechanical Engineering & Biomechanics
Discipline Lead, Mechanical Engineering/Biomechanics
Mr. Morr received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science (specializing in Biomechanics) degrees in Mechanical Engineering from The Ohio State University. After gaining automotive engineering experience at an international manufacturer and over five years of research, design, and testing experience as a biomechanical engineer at a measurement device company, Mr. Morr brought his education and experience to S-E-A in 2000. Since arriving at S-E-A, he has performed hundreds of accident investigations and reconstruction analyses, biomechanical analyses relative to injury mechanisms and injury causation, and mechanical engineering analyses of failure events.
Mr. Morr also has experience and training in the use of MADYMO, both in research and real-world human kinematic and kinetic analysis; HVE for vehicle accident and kinematic simulation analysis; and engineering support for animation. Capitalizing on his design and testing background, Mr. Morr leads research and case-specific testing programs at S-E-A, utilizing instrumented Anthropometric Test Devices (ATDs), vehicle-to-vehicle crash tests, and human volunteer testing.
In his career, Mr. Morr has continuously worked with colleagues on other biomechanical, mechanical, and investigative research projects, culminating in over 20 peer-reviewed publications and two book chapters. A registered Professional Engineer in 18 states, he is an active member of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), including the Accident Investigation and Reconstruction Practices Committee (AIRP); the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine (AAAM); the International Traffic Medicine Association (ITMA); the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME); and the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA).
This combination of experience, education, and training has maintained Mr. Morr’s status as an expert in his respective fields, with over eight years of testimony experience in criminal and civil courts nationwide.
