The action of forces in the back and abdomen under conditions of loading of different external forces at different bending angles is unexplored area. This paper presents a methodology that enables calculation of the magnitudes of forces in the back and abdominal muscles using the combined techniques of the CATIA software system, appropriate mathematical model and polynomial regression analysis.
The person of 180cm in height and 85 kg in weight is loaded with 5 + 5 kg of cargo in both hands, and three cases of bending angles of 150, 300 and 600 relative to the vertical axis are analysed.


Keywords – Ergonometrics, anthropometry, abdomen, CATIA - ergonomic modules.
