Note: At the 2009 IABPA meeting in Portland, OR, USA, the IABPA membership voted to adopt the SWGSTAIN recommended terminology.
- Flow Pattern
- A change in the shape and direction of a bloodstain due to the influence of gravity or movement of the object.
This pattern was generated by drawing blood into a large-bore syringe and projecting it at the target.
There was enough volume to allow the excess blood to collect and flow down the target.
|Bevel & Gardner||Non-spatter Family - Regular Margin - Flow|
|James, Kish & Sutton||Passive - Contact/Transfer - Flow|
|Wonder||May be a criteria for Spatter Not a Criteria - Volume|
|SWGSTAIN||Flow Pattern - A bloodstain pattern resulting from the movement of a volume of blood on a surface due to gravity or movement of the target.|
