Abstract:

This volume describes the mathematical man-model of Phase II-A of the Cockpit Geometry Evaluation CGE Program and replaces the contents of the Phase II volume D162-10128-2. The CGE Program is developing a computerized method to evaluate the physical compatibility of crew members with crew stations beginning with the conceptual phases of the design. A link system enclosed by geometrical shapes has been developed to date to model any specified sized member of a human population. The majority of the link connecting points represent major joint centers of the body and the geometric shapes, based on anthropometric data, represent body segments.
