Series/Report no.: Contract Report (U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station) ; no. 3-114, Volume II
Abstract: This report sunmarizes the existing literature in the area of human response to vibration and interprets it in the vehicle environment context. Comparisons are made among the shake table approaches to determine human response to vibration as a function of frequency. Several examples of ride comfort studies in actual vehicle environment are also discussed. The problem of magnitude estimation is discussed in detail and both ratio judgement and cross-modality techniques are suggested as approaches. The first Appendix includes details of a feasibility study performed in the field to make ride measurements using the cross-modality technique. A second Appendix includes a research plan which is considered a sound next step in definition of human response to vehicle vibration in the cross-country environment.
