LITERATURE SURVEY OF PASSENGER COMFORT LIMITATIONS OF HIGH-SPEED GROUND TRANSPORTS

A literature survey was made of passenger comfort criteria applicable to high-speed ground transports. Factors considered include acceleration vibration, pressure changes, atmospheric contamination, visual disturbances, and noise. Literature examined includes engineering data pertinent to the analysis of riding comfort in trains, automobiles, and airplanes, as well as aerospace medical and other medical sources. The results of the survey are presented in figures and tables. A summary of recommended values of the pertinent variables is also provided. (Author)
