Abstract:

The Cockpit Geometry Evaluation Program is an experimental development to establish a standardized method for evaluating the physical geometry of a crew station. It evaluates the physical compatibility of a seated crew member of any size with any crew station beginning with the design concept. Data on the geometry of the crew station, the anthropometric characteristics of the crew members, and the sequence of tasks to be performed are stored in a computer. Mathematical routines provide dynamic movement for a variable-sized mathematical man-model. Numerical performance indicators, identification of physical and visual interferences, and reach infeasibilities are output. The crew station compliance with certain MIL-STD and -SPEC requirements is also checked. Volume I of the final report summarizes the results and techniques of Phases I, II and II-A. Author
