A Study on the Variation of the Body surface Area by the Arm movements to Somatotype -The Subject of the College Men-
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 26, issue 2, 1988, Pages 1~13
The purpose of this study was to classify somatotype of males, to show changes of the body skin surface by the somatotype. The size of sample was 156 males between age 20 and 24. Somatotype classified into Bending somatotype, Standard somatotype, Turning over somatotype. And according to the somatotype, changing of the upper part of the body by the arm movements analyzed through gypsum experiment. The result obtained from this study were as follows; 1. the variation of the upper part of the body form by changing the am movements, by the increasing of movements, shoulder-point ws moved to be inside or upside, the anterior armpit point & armpit point were moved to the upside. 2. As a result of investigating into the rate of the expansion and contraction of the basic lines and body surface area by the arm movements, the rate of expansion and contraction of the basic lines by the arm movements, the side sea length showed the maximum rate of extension in 135 degrees, the shoulder length showed the maximum rate of contraction in 135 degrees. The rate of expansion and contraction on the body surface area by the arm movements showed the phenomenon of contraction, of items F1, F6, B1, B9 showed the phenomenon of extension, of items F3, F4, F8, F9, B8, B9. 3. According to somatotypes, items which show the significant difference were, of items f3, f8, b3, b8, F2, F7, F8, B3, B7, in all movements.
A Study on the Amount of Formaldehyde and the Consumer's Recognizability -On the Basis of Disposable Napkins-
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 26, issue 2, 1988, Pages 15~27
This study was designed to measure the amount of formaldehyde in the disposable napkins of eighteen (18) different products. It was aimed to investigate the actual situation of the napkin consumption and to relate it to the amount of formaldehyde measured. The degree of recognizability on the harmfulness of formaldehyde was also studied. The amount of formaldehyde was measured by means of the Acetyl Acetone method. The actual situation of consumption and the recognizability of the formaldehyde were investigated by questionnaire. in the survey, the subjects was 12~53 years old and lived in Seoul Kyoungki-city. The statistical methods used were simple frequency and chi-square. The results obtained from this study were as follows; 1) Among eighteen (18) different disposable napkins, all was found to have less amount of formaldehyde than the japanese regulation. 2) From the survey on the actual situation of consumption, most resondents (66.1%) experienced the dermaptological problem after using the disposable napkins. 3) The recognizability of formaldehede was very low. The recognizability on the harmfulness of formaldehyde was low too, which represented the consumers had least or no knowledge about the formaldehyde release problem.
A Study on the shearing properties of Fabrics for Korean Women's Clothes
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 26, issue 2, 1988, Pages 29~38
The shearing properties, which belong to the mechanical properties of fabrics, are most closely related to the appearnace of weared clothes, formation and feeling of wearing. And they are the elements which show the sense of touch, the properties of drape, folds and recoveryk curve foring, and keeping up formation. Sorts of 156 commercial skil fabrics and polyester fabrics of Korean make for women's cloth were tested for shearing propreties. All samples were classified into for summer and for fall and winter wear. Then shearing properties were measured by kawabata's evluation method. In this study shear stiffness(G) and shear hysteresis (2HG, 2HG5) of shearing prperties were measurd, then G/W and 2HG/G which are concerning to formation of weared clothes and trnsformatio behavior wre properties. The results obtained are as follows: 1. Silk fabrics were higher than polyester fabrics in G and 2HG. Thickness and weight of the fabrics for summer were a third to a half of those of the fabrics for fall and winter, but shearing properties were almost the same in the two types of the fabrics. 2. Fabrics for fall and winter were lower than fabrics for summer in G/W and fabrics for summer were lower than fabrics for fall and winter in 2HG/G. 3. korean women's silk cloth was much lighter than Japanese kimono cloth in weight but thickness and shearing properties were almost the same in the two types of the clothes.
A Study on the Actual State of High School Girls' Clothing in Everyday Life -Especially on Spring and Summer Wear-
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 26, issue 2, 1988, Pages 39~47
The aim of this study is to grasp the actual state of high school girls' clothing after liberalization of their uniform and to provide the reasonable guidance materials in clothing for both schools and homes. These are the results of the study 1. In the aspect of the favor of clothing and the interest in about clothes. a. They were fond of wearing "T" shirts, blue jeans in summer and pants and jackets in spring as their school wear. That implies that they enjoy wearing active and practical clothes. b. In the aspect of color, majority of them favored blue or similar colors, Also they had the tendency to love soft, simple clothe and more students preferred cloth without pattern. c. In their choice of them, they seldom paid attention to the informative-label are not their chief interest. d. More than half of girls prepare one or two suits in advance in a season, and they would prepare them deliberately This implies that their everyday life inclothing is based on the economic motive. 2. In the aspect of the purchasing clothes, a. Most of the girls bought them at the market and some of them at the direct-sales stall. b. when they purchased clothes, most girls were accompanied by their/mother and senior girls more often by their friends. c. The price and kinds of their favorite clothes such as "T" shirts and blouse was 5,000 won or so, and skirts, pants, one-piece and jackets are from the range of 5,000 won to below 10,000 won mostly. d. In regard to so-called brand-name items by popular designers, half of the girls responded that they wear some of such kinds of items because of superiority of sewing and longterm wearing, and the other half tend not to wear them due to high price.
A Study on a Conceptual Model for Housing Quality in Urban Area
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 26, issue 2, 1988, Pages 49~67
The purpose of this study was to present a conceptual model for predicting housing quality. Housing quality was measured in three ways: perceived quality about physical features of houses, perceived level of the quality in comparison with perceived average level I urban area and housing satisfaction. The specific objectives to achieve the purpose were ; 1) to measure the perceived quality about physical features of houses and perceived level of the quality in comparison with the perceived average level I urban 2) to measure the level of housing satisfaction 3) to clarify the causality between the composite variables of housing quality. A final instrument was developed through two stage pilot surveys. The respondents were 1292 homemakers of middle and high economic class in seoul and Daejeon, selected through stratified random sampling technique. Data were collected during March and April, 1986, and analyzed using SPSS and SAS computer packages. The statistics used were frequency, percentage, F-test, Duncan's Multiple Range, x2, Cramer's V, Multiple linear Regression, Path analysis. The major finding were as follows; the variables significantly related to predict the housing quality were found. The simple, composite variables and 3 measures of housing quality were linked using path analysis, thereby a conceptual model predicting housing quality was suggested.
A study on simplified Textile testing apparatus for teaching high school students
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 26, issue 2, 1988, Pages 69~79
This study was to increase the experimental learning effect of textile materials in middle and high school. To this study, three kinds of simply devised apparatus were used for warmth retaining test, air permeability test and static electricity test. Two classes were chosen in a girls' high school comparing learning effect and classified the theoretical learning group and the experimental learning group. In the experimental group, a teaching plan to teach the properties of textile materials was made to use these apparatuses. The results were. 1. In the interest on the unit either the theoretical learning group or the experimental learning group were not different significantly. 2. In the items facilitation of motivation, unsatisfied desires and prevention of failure, effect of transfer and development of inquiry power, both groups were significant. 3. For the purpose of comparing the learning effect, two groups were examined for determining the level of understanding after teaching properties of textile materials. The mean value of the experimental learning group was higher than that of the theoretical learning group. The experimental learning group had more higher markers(over the point of 90) than the theoretical learning group.
