Abstract
Mass moments of inertia were obtained for twelve male and twelve female volunteers, anthropometrically representative of the Canadian Forces aircrew population, using an inverted torsional pendulum. Centres of gravity were determined in relation to a seat reference point for three body configurations. Multiple linear regression equations were developed which allow for prediction of mass moment of inertia from height and weight data. The results were analyzed separately for males and females and demonstrate that males and females of the same height and weight have similar inertial characteristics.
