Keywords: - Elert system, correlation, density of the human body, Body Mass Index, dimensional typology.



Abstract : - The aim of this study is to apply Elert’s principles for the determination of body sizes based on the knowledge of height and body weight to the radius of a sphere of the same mass and density as a human. The problem is addressed through multidimensional data analysis which facilitates a specific method of predicting "the variables" based upon the inter-dependencies between them. Elert’s System is the name of a general solution for the creation of sheer clothes designs which are created based on two body measurements of the customer. The independent variables in the experiment were further supplemented by a chest circumference and seat circumference. The experiment used a set of body dimensions from 1066 Czech women aged 18-60 years old measured in 1990. The output is a set of regression coefficients which can be used to calculate the so-called subordinate human body dimensions from which it is possible to generate the sheer documentation for the clothing product and verify the garment in 3D on a virtual figure. Elert´s principle is feasible useing two body dimensions and can be used in determining body size in the mass production of clothing.
