Dear Biomech-L users,

Thanks for those who replied my request. I ask how to get the following papers
from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (it is not so top secret as I thought):

HANAVAN, E.P. (1964) A Mathematical Model of the Human Body
DEMPSTER, W.T. (1955) Space requirements of seated operator
CHANDLER, R.F., CLAUSER, C.E., McCONVILLE, J.T., REYNOLDS, H.M., and
YOUNG, J.W. (1975) Investigation of the Inertial Properties of the Human
Body

The summary is:

1.
I made a package in Mathematica Program of human body model . It was based
Chandller's parameters. It can calculate CG of segment in 3D, moment of
inertia of segment, etc..
If you want to get it, please mail me.
See you.

You could try contacting:

Dr. Kaleps, tel. 513-255-3608, ikaleps@al.wpafb.af.mil
or
Louise Obergefell, LOBERGEFELL@FALCON.AL.WPAFB.AF.MIL

They both work at Wright Patterson Airforce Base


Good luck,

They are all available through the National Technical
Information Service (NTIS), Washington D.C.

These are all rather long reports 100-200 pages each rather than research
papers. The numbers you have indicated are report identification numbers
rather than page numbers.

Did you try to get these through NTIS (National Technical Information
Service) - at least that's what it used to be called? They used to be
available from that source. Your library should be able to give you current
information with regard to address, etc.

I have all of these. I'm not sure where you're located, but if you
could help with the cost of photocopying and postage, we can send you
complete copies.

Also, you may not know that Armstrong Laboratory, the generator of
most of this work, has two public domain FORTRAN computer programs--
GEBOD and ATB--which calculate the seated whole body CG of the
"seated operator". My summer task is to verify the accuracy of these
codes and to add a section which calculates whole-body principal
moments of inertia.

I believe you can request each of the articles from Wright Patterson
Airforce base itself. Probably that alone with Dayton, Ohio and look
up the zip will get there - Attention: Reprint Request or the like

Hope it works

You can order these government technical reports through the National
Technical Information Service (NTIS) in Washington, DC (USA). I don't
have their telephone number or address handy but you could call long
distance information and find the number. You will need to know the order
numbers for each report. I have them in my office (I'm at home now) and
can send them to you tomorrow if you need. I might be able to find the
address of the NTIS for you also. Please send me an email note if you
need these items. If I don't hear from you I'll assume that you got the
information from somewhere else. Good luck!
