high-velocity impact spatter


high-velocity impact spatter
   A bloodstain pattern caused by a high-velocity force characterized by a mistlike dispersion which, owing to the low density of the blood particles, has traveled only a short distance in flight. A high-velocity impact is considered to be approximately 100 feet per second or greater such as produced by gunshot and high-speed machinery. Individual stains within the mistlike dispersion are usually 0.1 mm or smaller in diameter but may be seen in association with larger bloodstains.
