Determination of the moments of inertia of the human body and its limbs by Wilhelm Braune( Book )

19 editions published between 1892 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is another classic contribution by Braune and Fischer to the field of biomechanics, translated here for the first time from the original German edition of 1892. The pendulum method was employed to ascertain accurately the moments and radii of inertia of the human body and its different parts about all axes - transverse, oblique or longitudinal. This elegant method is described in detail, together with the results. Relations were found between the centres of inertia on the one hand, and the lengths and diameters of the body segments on the other. These data were originally prepared for the authors' later work, The Human Gait, to determine the forces exerted on and by the parts of the body during walking. Such work is the basis for solving the mechanical problems related to any movement of the human body: thus, the original results presented here continue to be of immense value to current research and practice
The human gait by Wilhelm Braune( Book )

12 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and German and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The different chapters of the present book were published separately each as a complete entity in the Proceedings of the Royal Saxon Society for Sciences. Chapter 1 appeared in 1895 under the names of Wilhelm Braune and Otto Fischer although Braune died immediately after the initial experiments, before the recordings had been interpreted. Chapters 2-6 were signed by Fischer only and appeared in 1899, 1900, 1901, 1903 and 1904. Basic data needed for this investigation of the human gait had been provided previously. A research on the centre of gravity ofthe human body and its different segments by both authors was published in 1889, determination of the moments of inertia of the human body and its segments in 1892. So far only the fIrst of these two works has been published in English. The other has been translated and awaits publication. Springer-Verlag must be congratulated for the quality of this edition and for the care they took in reproducing the original fIgures. This was certainly no easy task. We thank them for the patience they displayed towards the translators. Publication of the present book was made possible fInancially by Prof. M. Muller, Bern. We are grateful to him for his generosity and so will be the scientifIc community

IY heit der beiden Bewegungsarten aufdeckten. Im Zusammenhange des Ganzen durften aber die drei Paragraphen über die Entstehung der Wirbel nicht unterdrückt werden. Der zweite Haupttheil des Werkes behandelt die, r ellen in Bezug auf Schall und Licht; er tritt dem Umfange nach gegen den ersten zurück und besitzt auch nicht mehr eine so unmittelbare Bedeutung wie jener. An Stelle der Andeutung des {sect} 249 über einen Zusammen hang zwischen dem Klang einer Saite und der Gestalt, die sie bei ihrer Schwingung abwechselnd annimmt, ist die umfassende Theorie der Obertöne und Vokalklänge getreten; neue Methoden der Beobachtung, neue instrumentelle Hülfsmittel von grosseI' Vollkommenheit wurden geschaffen, die Resultate der Forschnng durch ausgezeichnete Werke allgemeiner zugänglich gemacht. Immer aber enthält die WEBER'sche \Vellenlehre auch in ihrem der Akustik gewidmeten Theile eine Reihe von grundlegenden Beobachtungen, auf welche anch jetzt noch jede Darstellung der Akustik zurückgreifen wird. Wir erinnern mit Bezug hierauf an die Messungen der Geschwindigkeit von Seil wellen, an die Untersuchungen über Zungenpfeifen und über die Oerter der Stille in der Umgebung schwingender Stimmgabeln. Der Wellenlehre des Lichts sind nur wenige Paragraphen gewidmet; der eigenen experimentellen Arbeit der Verfasser lag die Optik fern und FRESNEL hatte erst wenige Jahre früher die Reihe seiner Arbeiten eröffnet; im selben Jahre mit der Wellenlehre erschien zum ersten Male die Uebersetzung einer FREsNEL'schen Abhandlung in den POGGEN DORFl
