    Kenton Kaufman, Dr. Duane Knudson, and Larry Wellman. Here are references I

    Four research articles:

    Jensen R.K., (1978) Estimation of the Biomechanical Properties of Three Body
    Types using a Photogammetric Method. Journal of Biomechanics 11 : 349-358.
    Jensen R.K., (1986) Body Segment Radius and Radius of Gyration Properties of
    Children. Journal of Biomechanics 19, : 359-368
    Jensen, R.K. (1989) Changes in segment inertial proportions between 4 and 20
    years. J. Biomech. 22, 529-536.
    Jensen R.K., (1993) Human Morphology: its role in the mechanics of human
    movement. Journal of Biomechanics 26 suppl. 1 : 81-94

    One book:
