Abstract

In this paper, we suggest guidelines related to the design limit or range by body dimensions based on 'SizeKorea 2004'. This paper describes three sequential tests. First, body dimensions' percentile curves were analyzed in order to find out their trends. Second, their appropriateness with respect to normality assumptions by gender and age was tested. Finally, the steepest slopes at both extremes of female and male percentile curves were checked and analyzed. By performing these sequential tests, five patterns of body dimensions were found. Findings from this research were two-fold. First of all, adult percentile curves, by and large, did not follow a normal distribution. The other finding was that the design limit for 33% of the male body dimensions must be from 5th to 97.5th percentiles and the limit for 85% of the female body dimensions must be from 2.5th to 97.5th percentiles, which shows their steepest slope at the extremes of the percentile curves. From this study, eight specific design guidelines for extreme design by patterns of body dimensions were found.
