  • Lower body bracing behaviours during externally supported tasks with
           extended reaches
    • Authors: Jessica Cappelletto, Jim R. Potvin
      Pages: 1 - 12
      Abstract: In many jobs, objects in the task environment can restrict a worker's posture, by constraining how close their body is to the object being acted on. Although this provides an obstacle for the worker, these objects can be used to externally support their body by means of lower body bracing. The purpose of this study was to determine when participants would brace, and to quantify the amount of force used for bracing. At four task hand locations, participants performed six exertions, with all combinations of two forces and three directions, and participants chose whether they braced or not. Participants were twice as likely to brace when the task had a far reach. Average brace forces were 117 N for upwards and pulling exertions, and 67 N for downward exertions. These data can be used to guide the prediction of external forces during work simulation and proactive ergonomics assessments.

  • The benefits of advanced exposure metrics to estimate occupational
           shoulder demands
    • Authors: Meghan E. Vidt, Nicholas J. La Delfa, Jacquelyn M. Maciukiewicz, Andrew J. Ho, Jack P. Callaghan, Clark R. Dickerson
      Pages: 13 - 33
      Abstract: Physical exposure assessment is a critical component of ergonomic analysis in occupational settings. This work used a computational model to obtain quantitative measures of shoulder moment, glenohumeral joint contact force and rotator cuff muscle demand based on recorded postures and manual force estimates during the performance of ten different occupational tasks. Outcomes of simulation analyses demonstrated that advanced model outputs can enhance resolution of shoulder-specific exposures currently unavailable with standard ergonomics assessment techniques. A novel composite injury risk score effectively discriminated between shoulder exposure levels. It includes multiple complementary parameters into a single exposure risk assessment tool. The major contribution of the work is to establish the feasibility and utility of incorporating a computational model into ergonomic assessments across occupational tasks.

  • Optimisation-based identification of parameters in a mathematical
           model of muscle fatigue
    • Authors: Laura A. Frey-Law, Frank K. Urban <suffix>III</suffix>
      Pages: 34 - 46
      Abstract: A number of mathematical muscle fatigue models have been developed; however, the determination of optimal parameter values defining model behaviour is not trivial. Typically, parameter identification relied on estimates of endurance time (ET) for sustained static contractions. However, this is not feasible for more complex tasks, such as intermittent contractions, in which ET is not achieved or reported due to long task durations. Here we present numerical methods, which use multiple time-varying measures of fatigue development to find best-fit fatigue (<i>F</i>) and recovery (<i>R</i>) parameter values for one fatigue model. While we used the three-compartment controller model (3CC), the approach using the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm could be applied to other fatigue models. This method determines best-fit parameter solutions as those resulting in a minimum least squares difference between measured and modelled data. We present a summary of this approach with two extreme examples with multiple on/off cycle repetitions from the literature to demonstrate determination of the two model parameters, <i>F</i> and <i>R</i>, for each dataset. Thus, the method works with repetitive contractions, utilising multiple data points over time, not just a single endurance time point, as in previous studies.

  • Development and evaluation of an anthropometric module for digital human
           modelling systems
    • Authors: Erik Brolin, Dan Högberg, Lars Hanson, Roland à rtengren
      Pages: 47 - 70
      Abstract: This paper presents the development of a software module and a graphical user interface which aims to support the definition of anthropometry of manikins in a digital human modelling (DHM) tool. The module is developed from user interviews and literature studies, as well as mathematical methods for anthropometric diversity consideration. The module has functionality to create both single manikins and manikin families, where it is possible to combine or analyse different population datasets simultaneously. The developed module and its interface have been evaluated via focus group interviews and usability tests by DHM tool users. Results from the studies show that the developed module and its interface has relevant functionality, fits well into industrial work processes, and is easy to use. The study also identifies possibilities to further increase usability.

  • Short note - assessment of the required human capacity factor using flight
           simulator as an appropriate accelerated test vehicle
    • Authors: Erik Brolin, Dan Högberg, Lars Hanson, Roland à rtengren
      Pages: 71 - 74
      Abstract: Flight simulator can be employed as an appropriate and successful test vehicle that could be used to quantify, on the probabilistic basis, the required level of the human capacity factor (HCF) with respect to the expected mental workload (MWL) during fulfillment of a particular aerospace mission or in an extraordinary situation. In the analysis that follows it is shown how this could be done. The main concepts are illustrated by a numerical example.

      Abstract: This note is an extension, a generalisation of and an attempt to quantify, on the probabilistic basis, the message of the recent Kaindl and Svetinovic (2019) publication <i>Avoiding Undertrust and Overtrust</i>. The author of the present analysis addresses some important aspects of the human-in-the-loop problem for safety-critical missions and situations, in which trust can be viewed as an essential part of the human-capacity-factor (HCF). This factor, as has been recently suggested, should be evaluated vs. mental workload (MWL), when there is a need to assure a successful and safe outcome of a particular human effort, such as, e.g., an aerospace mission or an extraordinary situation. The double exponential probability distribution function (DEPDF) for the random HCF is revisited. It is shown particularly that the entropy of this distribution, when applied to the <i>trustee</i> (a human, a technology, a methodology or a concept), can be viewed as an appropriate quantitative characteristic of the propensity of a decision maker to an under-trust or an over-trust judgment and, as a consequence of that, to the likelihood of making a mistake or an erroneous decision.
      Keywords: human capacity factor; mental workload; under-trust or over-trust; probabilistic approach
