Abstract:

The Cockpit Geometry Evaluation CGE Program is a development of improved methods for evaluating the physical compatibility of crew members with crew stations. The heart of the program is a 23-joint, three-dimensional man-model BOEMAN that simulates the motion of humans performing tasks in a given environment. The computer program system CPS ties the project together. The system uses an updatable bank of anthropological, environmental and task sequence data. The system provides information concerning data consistency, reach capability, crew station compliance to select military standards, locations and orientations of joints and body segments during movement, visual andor physical interference of BOEMAN with the crew stations and with himself, numerical performance data on joint displacement and deflection, and mass displacements.
