Results from a test program at Langley Research Center to develop an empirical model for predicting passenger comfort responses to multiaxis vibrations are restricted to a description and understanding of human response to complex vertical axis vibrations. The approach to multifrequency vibration includes a separate consideration of the discomfort associated with each frequency component or band of the total spectrum, and a subsequent empirical weighting of the discomfort components of these frequency bands when in various random combinations.
