Abstract:

Previous anthropometric surveys presented means, standard deviations, ranges, and percentiles as descriptors of the anthropometric features of aviator populations. These reports were limited to a consideration of each variable independently. However, designers also need knowledge of the interaction between variables in order to determine what proportion of the potential operator population their design decisions will eliminate. This report extends data previously collected from 1549 naval aviation personnel by presenting bivariate tables that illustrate the relationship between selected variables. Twenty-one tables were prepared which contained selected interactions between the following variables bideltoid diameter buttock-knee length eye height, sitting functional reach head height knee height, sitting sitting height shoulder height, sitting standing height and thigh circumference. Means, standard deviations, ranges, regression equations, standard error of estimate, and percentile levels were also presented for each variable. Author
