Abstract
Crewstation Assessment of Reach (CAR) is a man-modelling, computer-aided design program which predicts operator reach, vision and head clearance within an aircraft crew station. The Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine (DCIEM) has evaluated the CAR-III program version for its use in the Canadian Forces (CF) aircrew/cockpit compatibility evaluation (ACCE). The program was deemed inappropriate as a primary assessment tool but was recommended for supplementary use in generating populations of various anthropometric proportions and in providing percentile equivalents of operator measurements. In the report, corrections and enhancements to the program, implemented in the recently released CAR-IV version, are summarized. Notably, the female operator model is now constructed using appropriate link transformation equations. TRUNCATED
