Dear Subscribers,
One of my students has a research to do, which may be interesting
for some of you. She looks if the design of the pedals of the
Fokker F50 and the Boeing 737, can be improved. Especially she has
to find out how to prevent extreme body joint movements in relation
to high pedal forces. She is now setting up an experiment in our
lab to measure in a similar situation, the static forces of female
students( varying in height and weight).
If someone of you has suggestions of literature or anything else
related to this problem, we would welcome it.
with kind regards,
