  • Introduces wave theory, vibration classification, and vibration axes
  • Coincides with the introduction of regulation concerned with occupational vibration exposure
  • Examines whole-body vibration standards
  • Analyzes vibration measurement topics including measurement flow, human vibration meters, and accelerometersAudience
  • Summary

    Through continued collaboration and the sharing of ideas, data, and results, the international community of researchers and practitioners has developed an understanding of many facets of the human response to vibration. At a time when the EU is preparing to adopt a directive on health risks arising from occupational exposure to vibration, Human Response to Vibration offers authoritative guidance on this complex subject.

    Individual chapters in the book examine issues relating to whole-body vibration, hand-arm vibration, and motion sickness. Vibration measurements and standards are also addressed. This book meets the needs of those requiring knowledge of human response to vibration in order to make practical improvements to the physical working environment. Written with the consultant, practitioner, researcher, and student in mind, the text is designed to be an educational tool, a reference, and a stimulus for new ideas for the next generation of specialists.
