Tolerance Estimation of Human Postural Stability Against Train Drafts

This paper describes research studying the effects of train-generated drafts on the ability of human postural stability. A wind tunnel experiment was conducted in whic people were exposed to a transient wind force similar to a draft from a passing train. The effect of wind speed and wind duration was studied. Researchers estimated the tolerance of postural stability against transient wind using statistical and physical models.
