Furniture and Equipment Dimensions -- Further and Higher Education: 18 to 25 Age Group.
Department of Education and Science, London (England).
This report continues and extends the information provided in an earlier report (ED 035 238) by providing design data for students in further and higher education. The principle underlying the work is that equipment dimensions are determined from observation of student performance and that dimensions should be related to body size. Data on the functional measurements of 459 male and 147 female students are summarized on charts. Dimensional limits of students that can be used in the design of educational equipment are indicated. Additional diagrams, scales, and charts are included. (Author)
