HUMAN RESPONSE TO VERTICAL VIBRATION 460038

Investigators in this country and abroad have experimentally determined human response to the kinds of vibration encountered in street traffic, elevators, ships, trains, automobiles and airplanes. Each has covered a limited range of frequencies and amplitudes and employed different descriptive terms for grading their effects on the human body. In this article the findings of a number of studies on the effects of vertical vibration are reconciled graphically, making possible an easy classification of the human responses to a vertical sinusoidal motion. The range of vibrations covered by the graph - namely, for frequencies between 0.1 and 256 cps and amplitudes between 100 and 0.00003 inches, includes the regions of interest in all modes of transportation.
