ASSIGNMENT – Anthropometrics (FLIGHT DECK DESIGN)


ASSIGNMENT – Anthropometrics (FLIGHT DECK DESIGN) Word Limit: 1,000 words (excluding references, diagrams and photographs) This coursework requires you to undertake a brief anthropometric audit of a car and write a report (we appreciate that you cannot always get easy access to an aircraft flight deck)! The same principles, apply. Can the tallest and smallest of the potential users reach everything and see everything given the amount of adjustment available? You will need 20 or more academic references (journals and text books) to complete this assignment. Please see attached the lecture notes for guidance. Procedure – Get into your car and take up your normal driving position. (Alternatively, you may wish to observe someone else performing the same tasks in their car.) Can you see and reach everything easily? Now adjust the seat as far forward as it will go and as far backward. 1. Identify which are the key anthropometric dimensions for using the pedals (hint: you sit with your legs bent at the knees and you need to be able to press the pedals fully down)! Can your car accommodate a 5th percentile Japanese Woman and a 95th percentile Western Male (see attached the Appendix)? 2. Adjust the seat back with the seat in the extreme positions – can the tallest and smallest person reach everything (steering wheel; gear lever; various switches, etc.)? You can also adjust the steering wheel position if necessary. 3. Next, and this may take a little bit of effort… With your eyes in the appropriate position for each of the above users (remember their relative sitting eye height…) how is your visibility inside and outside the vehicle? 4. Finally, think about the different ways in which car design and aircraft flight deck design accommodate people of different sizes. Report requirements – Illustrate your answer liberally using diagrams and photographs, as required (these do not count against the word count)! You are required to use annotated figures/diagrams/photos to address the above issues – long paragraphs of text are not required. You must present evidence for all the conclusions that you draw.
