The purpose of the present study was to establish an extension of generalized tri-phasic logistic human growth model. This model was applied through the higher dimensional growth process. Bayesian method of estimation was applied to estimate the parameters of the model. Principal component regression method was applied when there was a problem of multicollinearity in the model. The biological characteristics of the human growth process were extracted from the velocity and acceleration curve using gradient vector and Hessian matrix.
