Abstract
The computer-based three dimensional man-model called SAFEWORK, is based on anthropometric data from the US Army survey of 1988-1990. The model includes 94 variables. This report documents the results of feasibility studies for: the inclusion of data from CF anthropometry surveys; interpolating missing CF data from the SAFEWORK model; including aircrew reach data, and strength data related to body size; developing test criteria for the percentage of a population accommodated by a design; adjusting data for secular trends; developing a clash-algorithm; modeling the effects of clothing, and importing representations from the VAPS rapid prototyping system.
