Accidents that occured in Indonesia such as fire and fallen aircrafts have caused many victims.

On
those cases certain body parts are can only be found like head or the long bones from victims body
parts. Based on that, forensic identification is needed to identify victim. The condition when victims
with only long bones found like humerus, ulna, radius, tibia, and femur, makes researchers wanted
to examine the correlation between the length of radius bone with body height. Fire and plane
crashs accidents that occured commonly in Indonesia and especially in Lampung have multiple cases
frequency. Body height measurement based on long bones had already done in Medical Faculty of
Lampung University, which are based on femur, humerus and ulna bones. Those studies concludes
that there is correlation between both of them, but there is not any reasearch done yet based on
radius bone in Medical Faculty. Factors that can influence bone growth are genetic, gender, age,
environment and nutrition factors. There is equation that can be used to calculate the average
height of adult men by using Karl Person, Trotter and Gleser equations and calculate the length of
radius bone, the result is there is correlation of both. Based on studies by researchers show that
there is correlation between long bones and body height, also based on studies done in Medical
Faculty of Lampung Univesity, thus there is correlation between the length of radius bone with body
height of adult men.
