# THE SIMULATION OF AERIAL MOVEMENT-II . A

@inproceedings{Yeadon2018THESO, title={THE SIMULATION OF AERIAL MOVEMENT-II . A}, author={Maurice Raymond Yeadon}, year={2018} }

A mathematical inertia model which permits the determination of personalized segmental inertia parameter values from anthropometric measurements is described. The human body is modelled using 40 geometric solids which are specified by 95 anthropometric measurements. A ‘stadium’ solid is introduced for modelling the torso segments using perimeter and width measurements. This procedure is more accurate than the use of elliptical discs of given width and depth and permits a smaller number of such… Expand

The central idea is that after reduction the twisting motion is apparent in a body frame, while the somersaulting is recovered by a combination of dynamic and geometric phase, and the master twisting-somersault formula is derived. Expand
