Effects of sitting and standing posture on the compressive forces at L5/S1 disc
Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 2, 1992, Pages 3~13
Resultant compressions on the L5/S1 joint of six subjects were studied as they lif- ted light weights in sitting and standing work postures. The subjects activities were photographed and analysed later by a static biomechamical computer model. Statistically significant differences were found between the result of the two postures analyses. Sitting posture showed significantly high compressions on the joint when doing several material handling tasks having the same work loads from the hip joint. Therefore, it is recommended that working with light weights in standing is less hazardous than doint the same work sitting postures, although both the maximum compression forces are under the Action Limit suggested by NIOSH.
A study on the robot motion analysis by the ROBOT MODAPTS techhique
Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 2, 1992, Pages 15~21
This paper presents the ROBOT MODAPTS(Modular Arrangement of Predetermi- ned Time Standards) technique which can be applied to the robot motion analysis. Robot motions are easily divided into several movement activities and terminal activi- ties by means of the ROBOT MODAPTS technique Each link of robot arm is numbered such that finger is 1, hand is 2, elbow is 3, and so on. The robot motion time of each link is counted by multipling its given number to some time values observed at the finger movement. We can easily estimate robot teaching task time with this technique. This technique can be applied efficiently to establishing an adaptable robot motion ergonomically.
Development of the foot track system for the evaluation of foot plantar surface pressure distribution
Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 2, 1992, Pages 23~33
The distribution of the pressure between the sole of a feet and a supporting surface can reveal the information about the structure and fonction of the foot and the posural control of the whole body. In particular, the measurement of the vertical contact forces between the plantar surface of the foot and the shoe insole is of great importance to reveal the loading distributio patterns incurred from a particular shoe midsole design. In order to investigate the plantar surface pressure distribution, an insole-type sensor with a piezoelectric material is developed and tested. The present paper describes a new method to completely reduce both the shear force and pyroelectric effects that are normally caused from piezoelectric materials.
Causal factors and symptoms of human behavior error domain in human-foftware interaction
Park, P. ; Lee, K.S ;
Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 2, 1992, Pages 35~45
This study is to define a congitive paradigm including a new model of common cause human behavior error domain and to analyze their causal factors and their properties of common cause human error characteristics in software engineering. A laboratory study was performed to analyze the common causes of human behavior domain error in software development and to identify software design factors contributing to the common cause effects in common cause failure redundancy. The results and analytical paradigm developed in this research can be applied to reliabbility improvement and cost reduction in software development for many applications. Results are also expected to provide training guidelines for software engineers and for more effective design of ultra-high reliable software packages.
An analysis of learning effect of finger's reaction time for middle and old aged
Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 2, 1992, Pages 47~56
In this paper, a mathematical model of learning curve is proposed to study the fi- nger's reaction time. The model is a logarithmic linear type which represents a lear- ning curve appropriately, and parameters are estimated by the linear. The learning coefficient and percentage of a reaction time can easily computed in the mathematical model. This quantitative approach provieds an important information to be used fot the working capqbility qualification of re-employment as well as the adaptability estimation of aged workers.
A study on the moving fitness of the tight skirt
Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 2, 1992, Pages 57~67
This study is to investigate the fitness of tight skirt in moving lower limb. The fit- ness was tested by measuring the step length, stride length, maximum stair step height. One humdred and twenty female subjects participated in the experiment. It was shown that the tight skirt caused the most reduction in the maximum stair step height among the five lengths measured. It was also shown that the long tight skirt limited the maximum stair step height more than the mini tight skirt.
