Rate of growth of vibration discomfort with increasing magnitude of fore-and-aft, lateral, and vertical whole-body vibration in the frequency range 1 to 10 Hz

Rate of growth of vibration discomfort with increasing magnitude of fore-and-aft, lateral, and vertical whole-body vibration in the frequency range 1 to 10 Hz
Rate of growth of vibration discomfort with increasing magnitude of fore-and-aft, lateral, and vertical whole-body vibration in the frequency range 1 to 10 Hz
British and International standards provide frequency weightings to assist the
prediction of the discomfort caused by fore-and-aft, lateral and vertical wholebody
vibration. The practical application of the weightings assumes that the
frequency-dependence and directional-dependence of vibration discomfort is
independent of the magnitude of vibration. This will only be the case if the rate of
growth of vibration discomfort with increasing magnitude of vibration is the same
at all frequencies and in all three directions of vibration. With 24 subjects this
study determined the rate of growth of vibration discomfort associated with
translational vibration over the frequency range 1 to 10 Hz at unweighted
magnitudes of vibration in the range of 0.09 to 3.5 m.s-2 r.m.s. (weighted
magnitudes in the range 0.088 to 0.70 m.s-2 r.m.s.). The rate of growth of
vibration discomfort showed large variations according to the frequency and
direction of vibration and was generally greater for vertical vibration than for
horizontal vibration.

Abstract

British and International standards provide frequency weightings to assist the
prediction of the discomfort caused by fore-and-aft, lateral and vertical wholebody
vibration. The practical application of the weightings assumes that the
frequency-dependence and directional-dependence of vibration discomfort is
independent of the magnitude of vibration. This will only be the case if the rate of
growth of vibration discomfort with increasing magnitude of vibration is the same
at all frequencies and in all three directions of vibration. With 24 subjects this
study determined the rate of growth of vibration discomfort associated with
translational vibration over the frequency range 1 to 10 Hz at unweighted
magnitudes of vibration in the range of 0.09 to 3.5 m.s-2 r.m.s. (weighted
magnitudes in the range 0.088 to 0.70 m.s-2 r.m.s.). The rate of growth of
vibration discomfort showed large variations according to the frequency and
direction of vibration and was generally greater for vertical vibration than for
horizontal vibration.
