A Practical Approach to Truck Ride Instrumentation and Evaluation - A Summary 660140
The comprehensive presentations on ride instrumentation are reviewed with special reference to the practical requirements for use in heavy, commercial highway vehicles. This leads to specific recommendations for (a) measurement equipment which is relatively uncomplicated, economical, and commercially available; and (b) road testing procedures which facilitate the acquisition and processing of essential data.
New data on human response to vibration, presented by Pradko and Lee, are correlated with previously proposed criteria to show important areas of agreement. Detailed procedures are recommended for interpretation of vibration measurements in terms of human response. Desirable shock and vibration limits for cargo protection are also proposed.
