Anthropometry of airline stewardesses by Clyde C Snow( )

6 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report presents the body measurements of 423 stewardess trainees enrolled in the American Airlines Stewardess Training Academy in Fort Worth, Texas, between February and June 1971. It includes the means, standard deviations, coefficients of variation, percentiles, and related statistics of 72 standard anthropometric and functional measurements. The survey was initiated to provide adequate criteria for improving the emergency equipment availability and workspace design for the stewardess
Fatal injuries resulting from extreme water impact by Richard G Snyder( )

5 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increased overwater flight has resulted in an increase in both military ejections and civil crash landings in water, 78 general aviation water accidents occurring in 1965. The objective of the study was to determine mechanisms of gross trauma in non-penetrating fatal water impact. The method involved analysis of necropsy data on 169 fatal (52 female, 117 male) jumps from the Golden Gate Bridge. Impact velocities ranged from 106-112 ft/sec (32.31-34. 14 m/sec) and body orientation was mainly transverse or lateral. The most common mechanism of injury was crushing of the thoracic cage with resultant bilateral rib fractures and penetration of the vital organs (85.2 percent). Lung lacerations, ruptured livers, brain injury, and drowning were most frequent. In 17 cases, no skeletal fractures were found. Eight individuals, apparently relatively uninjured by the impact subsequently drowned. These data reinforce previous work indicating human tolerance in water impact close to 116 ft/sec (33.53 m/sec) velocity, and body orientation is critical. Additional protection in transverse and lateral impact must be considered for increased survivability
Survival in emergency escape from passenger aircraft by Clyde C Snow( )

6 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The human factors data from three aircraft accidents involving emergency evacuations are reviewed. Of the 261 passengers aboard, 105 died in attempts to escape during the 1- to 3-minutes prior to the build-up of a lethal thermotoxic environment within the cabin. In all three accidents, decelerative forces were mild and cabin destruction and impact injuries minimal. The three most prominent factors influencing survival were found to be: distance between the occupant's seat and the exit he attempts to use; sex, with adult males having a strong advantage; among adult males, age, with younger males the more frequent survivors. Age and sex are also significant factors in determining frequency and severity of injuries among survivors. Comparison of the accident evacutions with test evacutions indicate that, in the latter, the biobehavioral factors disadvantageous to elderly males and adult females are not present. (Author)

Sex and race determination of crania by calipers and computer : a test of the Giles and Elliot discriminant functions in 52 forensic cases( Book )

6 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Giles and Elliot discriminant functions diagnosing sex and race from cranial measurements were tested on a series of forensically examined crania of known sex and race. Of 52 crania of known sex, 46 (88%) were correctly diagnosed. Racial diagnoses were correct in 30 (71%) of 42 crania of known race. Analysis of the facial data indicates that most of the errors resulted from the misclassification of American Indian crania as White or Negro. This suggests that the temporally remote and geographically limited prehistoric Indian crania used in developing the functions do not provide a data base representative of the present-day U.S. American Indian population. Cranial size, age at death, and certain pathological conditions altering cranial form can also contribute to misdiagnoses of sex and /or race by the function. We conclude, that despite some shortcomings, the Giles and Elliot discriminant functions provide a useful tool in forensic anthropology
Spatial geometry of the human pelvis by H. M Reynolds( Book )

5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents a three-dimensional description of adult female and male pelvis from the Hamann-Todd skeletal collection, Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Based on a linear height/weight matching strategy and the 1961- 1964 U.S. Health and Examination Survey (HES) data, specimens were selected to represent the small female, medium male, and large male pelvic sizes. One hundred and twenty-three anatomically defined points are used to describe the spatial pelvic geometry in a pelvic-anatomical axis system. A statistical summary of means and standard deviations is presented as X, Y, and Z coordinate value sets to identify each point in three-dimensional space. Full-scale models for each size category were produced for design modeling of anthropomorphic test devices. These data will also be useful as comparative standards for forensic investigations of air crashes and quantitative information on size and shape variability of adult human pelvis
Wanted, Butch and Sundance( Visual )

3 editions published between 1993 and 2018 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documents the search for the physical remains of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, in an effort to answer the question of how they died and where they were buried. The search takes forensic anthropologist Clyde Snow to a cemetery in San Vincente, Bolivia
Pathology of trauma attributed to restraint systems in crash impacts by Richard G Snyder( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considerable attention has been focused on the sophisticated restraint and ejection protection of rigidly selected occupants of military aircraft and manned space vehicles. However, the vast majority of occupants of military and both civil transport and general aviation aircraft, as well as the occupants of over eight million new automotive vehicles per year, include a much wider range of sex, age, and physical capability. The means of protecting and yet accommodating this wide range of occupant population are restricted to less sophisticated types of restraint systems. The types and severity of injuries attributed to such systems as the lap belt, 3-point harness, single diagonal belt, and double-torso harness, as well as an experimental double-torso inverted-Y yoke with inertia reel and an air bag restraint system, have been assessed in this study. Sixty experiments were conducted with Savannah baboons (papio cynocephalus). Controlled experiments in a related series of studies considered a nunber of factors, including physical impact patterns typical of a commercial jet transport crash, the side-facing seat installation, and forward, rear, and sidefacing light-aircraft and automotive impacts. One additional impact series investigated effects of seat belt restraint on pregnant maternal and fetal trauma. Both gross and microscopic examinations were conducted post- impact for acute trauma, and three cases of chronic survival injuries 30 days and 90 days post-impact are described. Trauma patterns distinctive of the various restraint systems are identified and described
Experimental comparison of trauma in lateral (+Gy), rearward-facing (+Gx), and forward-facing ( -Gx) body orientations when restrained by lap belt only by Richard G Snyder( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study, 24 anesthetized Savannah Baboons (Papio cynocephalus) restrained with a lap belt were subjected to a controlled series of lateral impacts at entrance velocities ranging from 36.4 ft./sec. (15g.) to 88.2 ft./ sec. (44g.) 1,200 g./sec. to 5,900 g./sec. rate of onset, for total durations of 0.076 to .100 second. Sixteen lateral tests were run with four forward-facing and four rearward-facing controls. Gross and microscopic autopsies were performed. Pathology was found to be significantly higher in lateral impact. Ruptured bladders and uteri, adrenal hemorrhage, and subdural and epidural hemorrhage occurred frequently. A major finding, with unexplained etiology, was marked pancreatic hemorrhage most typical of the lateral impact. Under these test conditions, both survival and injury tolerance levels were found to be lower in the lateral body orientation, indicating lap belt restraint alone does not provide adequate body protection
The angle of shoulder slope in normal males as a factor in shoulder-harness design by Clyde C Snow( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to establish criteria for more comfortable shoulder-harness design, this study was conducted to determine the angle of slope of the top of the shoulders where poorly fitting shoulder harness may produce discomfort and, occasionally, functional impairment through compression of the underlying soft tissues. The mean shoulder-slope angle (measured from the vertical body axis) of normal males based on this study of 55 Air Traffic Service trainees is 67.5 deg. with a standared deviation of 5.0 deg.

Unsolved history : hunting Nazis( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Join host Daniel Martinez and his team of experts as they set out to uncover evidence of a sinister "Fourth Reich" that the Nazis may have built in South America in the years after World War II. Nearly 30,000 Nazi war criminals- including the notorious Dr. Josef Mengele- are known to have fled Europe for sympathetic countries like Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. How close were they to restoring Nazi power? Watch as famed archaeologist Clyde Snow re-enacts his landmark discovery of Mengele's intentionally mis-marked grave and the DNA authentication process he used to conclusively verify the Angel of Death's remains. Follow investigators as they retrace Mengele's steps back through time- from his last days in Argentina to his years in Auschwitz- and learn how so many Nazi war criminals were able to slip past the Allied forces- and how many still remain unaccounted for today"--Discovery.com

Forensic archaeology is mostly defined as the use of archaeological methods and principles within a legal context. However, such a definition only covers one aspect of forensic archaeology and misses the full potential this discipline has to offer
Anthropometry of air traffic control trainees by Charles C Snow( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the body measurements of 684 air traffic control trainees enrolled in training programs conducted at the Federal Aviation Agency Aeronautical Center at Oklahoma City between August 12, 1960, and June 30, 1961. It includes the means, standard deviations, coefficients of variation, percentiles, and related statistics of 60 standard anthropometric and functional measurements. The survey was initiated to provide adequate criteria for improving the workspace design for the air traffic controller and to provide anthropometric baseline data for future biometric and aging studies of Air Traffic Service personnel.

Bones of contention : Native American archaeology by Danielle Peck( Visual )

2 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The remains of more than 10,000 Native Americans unearthed at archaeological sites across the U.S. are in the possession of museums such as the Smithsonian. Is the analysis of the bones valid scientific research, or is it a desecration of Native American culture? This program focuses on the tensions between scientists, historians, and museum curators and Native American groups, as the bones take on a central role in a war of alternate perspectives. In examining this debate, the program provides an excellent survey of Native American archaeology in the U.S
