Concerning Paolo de Leva's request on mass distribution of the trunk, may I
suggest that a course distribution estimate can be found in two papers by
Zatsiorski and Seluyanov published in the proceedings from ISB meetings,
Biomechanics VIII-B and Biomechanics IX-B. Here the trunk is divided
into three segments only, not multiple "slices." Their data are based on 100
young living male subjects, however. For more information, you might contact
Dr. Zatsiorski at Penn State University, Biomechanics Lab, University Park, PA
16802. I am not sure of his email address.
