L'autore:

HENRY DREYFUSS ASSOCIATES, a leading New York design firm, has been a major developer of anthropometric data for more than seventy years, gathering and publishing all the essential measurements of the human body and its relationship to the designed environment.
ALVIN R. TILLEY (1914-93), the firm's specialist in human engineering for forty years, was recognized as one of the world's foremost authorities on human factors. The compiler of the data presented in this volume, Tilley was coauthor of Humanscale and a major contributor to this book's predecessor, The Measure of Man.

Dalla seconda/terza di copertina:

"If people are made safer, more comfortable, more eager to purchase, more efficient-or just plain happier-the designer has succeeded."
-Henry Dreyfuss

Since the first printing of this landmark book in 1959, Henry Dreyfuss Associates has kept this invaluable resource current and at the forefront of anthropometric research-this edition is no exception.

The Measure of Man and Woman provides up-to-date measurements and information for children, teenagers, adult men and women, and the elderly through its detailed text, convenient tabular material, and 200 anthropometric drawings. Data and guidelines are also included for the visually and hearing-impaired, the wheelchair-bound, and others who are differently abled. All measurements are presented in imperial and metric units and reflect people of sizes ranging from the 1st to 99th percentiles.

Special features of this revised edition include:
* Critical information on issues surrounding the digital workplace
* Measurements for ADA compliance
* A demo version of ErgoForms, an ergonomic CAD program on CD-ROM
* An introduction by Stephen B. Wilcox, PhD

In addition to human dimensions, The Measure of Man and Woman provides rates of growth and ranges of motion for the waist, neck, limbs, and all other parts of the body relevant to the design of objects and spaces. Much of the material here is focused on the safety issues that impact design, as well as environmental factors such as lighting, noise, temperature, color, and even radiation. Comprehensive coverage also includes practical information and measurements for designing corridors, ramps, bathroom facilities, and office workstations that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The Measure of Man and Woman is an invaluable reference for interior designers, architects, product designers, and students of these disciplines, as well as industrial engineers.
