The Research of Quantitative Analysis Methods on Product Form Information Based on the Cross-Section Diagram Set


Article Preview

The external morphological characteristics of the handle grip impacts the man-machine interaction especially that of with fingers. Hence, the research on the external morphological of existed products has important significance on the improvement of man-machine interaction when designing a product. Most of the traditional ways of obtaining or describing product form information are established on a variety of views which do not consist the quality of data analysing dynamically or quantitatively. The aim of this article is exploring a new method based on the cross-section diagram set of the product. The method works in a more accurate way in obtaining the diagram information of product, meanwhile, it describes the change state of products' external characteristics by the simplex dimension of information. The method allows a dynamic and quantized way analysing the external characteristics of the product.
