Abstract

The technical composition's properties should be appropriate to the physical and mental characteristics of human who will use or produce them. The goal of this research is the estimation of some anthropometric data of Turkish men population. For this goal, anthropometric measurements have been done on 220 male subjects according to the method used for design activities in the automotive industry. On human body, 29 anthropometric parameters have been measured. A multiple regression analysis was conducted to estimate the anthropometric parameters on human body by using two statistical variables, which are stature and weight. According to the results, 17 anthropometric parameters have been formulated depending on stature and weight. The determined formulations can be used especially by automotive industry during design.
