HUMAN RESPONSE TO MECHANICAL VIBRATION

INVLOED VAN MECHANISCHE TRILLINGEN OP DE MENS

Human response to vibration is a fast growing subject of research. Vibration is sensed at different locations in the human body at different frequencies. Considering the human body as a system, equal sensation curves are calculated comparable to early results. If the effect of motion sickness is taken into account the differences between interpretations in the lower frequency range are explained. The sensitivity of the human body to vibration is determined at the input of the body. People making field measurements put transducers at rigid places of a structure. The results may be compared if the transfer functions between the various measuring points are known. Those transfer functions e.g. of seats, may be determined in the laboratory. /TRRL/
