The case study will evaluate the trade-offs between optimizing towards minimal payback (a balance between upfront costs and fuel savings) and required floor space for the WHRS.
The obesity can be assessed by various measurements such as body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, sagittal abdominal diameter, and waist-to-hip ratio (WHR).
The waist-to-hip ratios (WHRs) were obtained by dividing the waist circumference to the hip circumference.
A notable innovation is the combining of a power take off/take in (PTO/PTI) shaft generator system with WHRS to improve the stability of the WHRS.
[7] Hence the present study is aimed to assess level of anxiety in medical students and to correlate anxiety levels with BMI and waist hip ratio (WHR).

Since women's faces and bodies may be signaling different kinds of information about their mate value (Currie & Little, 2009; Peters, Rhodes, & Simmons, 2007), and since certain highly salient bodily features, e.g., waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) (Singh, 1993), body fat (Tovee, Maisey, Emery, & Cornelissen, 1996), and breast size (Jasienska, Ziomkiewicz, Ellison, Lipson, & Thune, 2004), are linked to fertility and health, it would be of interest to explore whether women themselves experience changes in these and other bodily aspects around the time of ovulation.
(16,18) Interestingly, we failed to detect a significant change in WHR, which was probably because of the associated marked increase in the SCF compartment.
Also the range of WHRs (0.700 to 0.800) was narrower than that found in nature.
Females with high WHRs, who are "apple-shaped", are more likely to suffer health problems.
In overweight men with normal waist-to-hip ratios, the patterns of blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and fasting food sugar were significantly worse than those in nonobese men--and except for blood sugar levels, their risk patterns were as unfavorable as those of men with high WHRs. In overweight women with normal WHRs, on the other hand, only diastolic blooded pressure was significantly worse than in women with elevated WHRs.
Fifty percent of men (95% confidence interval [CI], 46 to 55) and 78% of women (95% Cl, 75 to 80) had central obesity based on elevated WHRs. Using an elevated WHR as the standard for central obesity, elevated BMI had a positive predictive value of only 64% and a negative predictive value of 68% in men.
