Trimpe, m a analysis of fireworks for particles of the type found in primer residue (gsr) presented at the american academy of forensic sciences meeting, seattle, washington, 2001. An explosive material, also called an explosive, is a reactive substance that contains a great amount of potential energy that can produce an explosion if released suddenly, usually accompanied by the production of light, heat, sound, and pressure. The study of gunshot residue (gsr) patterns can assist in the reconstruction of shooting incidences currently, there is a real need of methods capable of furnishing simultaneous elemental analysis with higher specificity for the gsr pattern visualization. Christine hay - elemental analysis of gunshot residue to differentiate bullet type and firing distance lisa hebda - dna isolation and analysis from skeletal remains: evaluating the utility of. Abstract: a comprehensive review of the scientific literature on gunshot residue (gsr) is presented aspects of both inorganic and organic gsr are discussed, from formation and distribution, to sample collection, preparation, and analysis using a variety of techniques.
Notably, gsr has been used to pinpoint suspects, differentiate homicide and suicide, and even to estimate the firing distance and to determine a bullet hole the chemical analysis of gsr can be focused on inorganic or organic components. In order to illustrate its usage, it is applied to gunshot residue (gsr) comparison data obtained in an experimental set-up and analysed using electron microscopy the data consists of a number of gunshot residues divided in k categories depending on their elemental composition. A method for improved forensic analysis using multi-view digital imaging of forensic specimens at a plurality of reflected, scattered, emitted, transmitted or absorbed wavelengths to provide new detailed information to distinguish and differentiate forensic materials and samples. Comparison of different swabs for sampling inorganic gunshot residue from gunshot wounds: applicability and reliability for the determination of firing distance this study concentrates on samples of bare pork skin, with and without bristles, and dried bovine ribs shot with a semi-automatic pistol to find the best methodology and sampling.

Recent graduates jordyn l geiger (2014) thesis: elemental analysis of gunshot residue to differentiate bullet type and firing distance current position: thesis: differentiation of bullet type based on analysis of gunshot residue using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. 1 – almeida, a a magaljaes, t santos, a sousa, a v vieira, d n firing distance estimation through the analysis of the gunshot residue deposit pattern around the bullet entrance hole by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry – an experimental study. They frequently have a light color, often with a greenish hue, and may be seen some distance from the bullet perforation, depending on the muzzle to target distance (see below) these particles will have varying shapes, depending on the type of powder in use.
