K U n t s c h e r (1934) employed the strain-sensitive lacquer for the first time to investigate the mechanical characteristics of bones. This technique was then used by G u r d j i a n and Lissner (1945), Evans and Lissner (1948), Evans, Lissner and Pedersen (1948), Evans and Lissner (1955), Evans and G o f f (1957), and Endo (1961) in their biomechanical(More)
Simulation of the biting action of the gorilla was made by using a macerated skull of the gorilla. Strains in the facial skeleton produced by this simulation were measured by the wire strain gauge. Some stress analyses were made from these strains and were compared with those of the human facial skeleton. The strains in the facial skeleton of the gorilla(More)
The form in frontal view of the recent human facial skeleton, including the frontal bone, was simulated under the condition of uniform strength to cope with the forces in the chewing action, by using the two-dimensional frame model made of members with step-wise variable cross-sections and by using the finite element analysis method. The simulation, in(More)
Parameters of walking at ordinary, fast and slow speeds in 30 male and 30 female young adults were investigated. More than 10 trials were made for each speed by each subject. The number of subjects and trials was large enough to permit a statistical analysis. The focus of the study was the movement of the point where the resultant foot-ground force(More)
