EVALUATION OF THE RIDE QUALITY IN VEHICLES AND A SUGGESTION FOR AN INTERNATIONAL PARAMETER FOR URBAN TRANSPORT

The results of a study conducted in the Federal Republic of Germany are discussed and show that while travelling in vehicles the human body suffers from mechanical vibrations which may impair its well-being, proficiency and possibly even health safety. The amount of impairment depends on the actual acceleration, frequency, exposure time to the vibration, and direction of the vibration with respect to the body.
