    Abstract : Introduction: Occupational drivers of terrain vehicles are exposed to several risk factors associated with musculoskeletal symptoms in the lower back as well as in the neck and upper limbs. Vibration has been suggested to be a main risk factor. These drivers are exposed to both whole-body vibration (WBV) and hand-arm vibration (HAV). READ MORE

  3. 3. Prediction of discomfort due to transient whole body vibrations

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Peter Jönsson; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknisk akustik; Engineering Acoustics;

    Abstract : This Licentiate is about Whole Body Vibrations and focuses on transient vibrations with human's discomfort and motion assessment. Whole Body Vibrations occurs when a body is in contact with a vibrating surface. Whole Body Vibrations is a major problem in terrain vehicle, which affects both the physiological and psychological health and discomfort. READ MORE

  4. 4. On Evaluation and Modelling of Human Exposure to Vibration and Shock on Planing High-Speed Craft

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Katrin Olausson; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; whole-body vibration; high-speed craft; working conditions; seat modelling; apparent mass; ergonomics; human factors; ISO 2631-1; ISO 2631-5; extreme values; acceleration statistics; slamming;

    Abstract : High speed in waves, necessary in for instance rescue or military operations, often result in severe loading on both the craft and the crew. To maximize the performance of the high-speed craft (HSC) system that the craft and crew constitute, balance between these loads is essential. READ MORE

  5. 5. Psychological responses to noise and vibration

    University dissertation from Umeå : Folkhälsa och klinisk medicin
