Could you be a little more specific in your question? Maybe put it in context?

I am going to be offline because I'm having some problems. I will pick up again later tonight or in the morning.

well, there are few pictures of a blood patterns on that website ( under "analyze the case")... my question is-how to determine from said blood patterns ( their size, shape, etc) what happened on the scene ( whethere a person was stabbed, shot... one time, or multiple times?)

Can you be a little more specific in your question, maybe put it in context? I'm very familiar with blood splatter evidence but not sure what you are looking for because that website has information that explains this.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
yeah, but i dont really understand their explanations... what kind of blood patterns were on the pics? did their size matters? how can it be determined from same that the victim was hit by a bunt object and not, for instance, shot with a gun???
Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 7 years ago.
The size of the blood pattern makes a difference. For instance, a punch that has blood spray from it has bigger drops and less spray than the pattern from a gunshot, which tends to make a mist due to the velocity. The shape of the splatter tells which direction it came from, which indicates where the victim was and where the assailant was.
