UNLABELLED The ISO 2631-1 ( 1997 ) provides methodologies for assessment of the seated human body comfort in response to vibrations. The standard covers various conditions such as frequency content, direction and location of the transmission of the vibration to the human body. However, the effects of seat structural dynamics mode shapes and corresponding(More)
This research aims to model Total Dissolved Solid (TDS) values at the Simineh River in northwest Iran by application of Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) to evaluate existing water quality conditions and also to predict future conditions in this river. The input parameters of the ANNs model are Calcium (Ca), Chloride (Cl), Magnesium (Mg), Sodium (Na),(More)
A large number of independent and interacting factors affect seating comfort such as seat shape, stability, lumbar support and seat height. Although many subjective comfort studies have been conducted, few of them considered seating comfort from its subassembly level. This paper analyzed the automotive seat cushion designed with geared four-bar linkage for(More)
Although much research has been devoted to the characterization of the effects of whole-body vibration on seated occupants' comfort, drowsiness induced by vibration has received less attention to date. There are also little validated measurement methods available to quantify whole body vibration-induced drowsiness. Here, the effects of vibration on(More)
Although much research has been done in developing the current ISO 2631-1 (1997) standard method for assessment seat vibration comfort, little consideration has been given to the influence of vehicle seat structural dynamics on comfort assessment. Previous research has shown that there are inconsistencies between standard methods and subjective evaluation(More)
The effect of acceleration – variable forward velocity, have been investigated on the steady-state and transient responses of turning vehicles and the resulted path of motion of the vehicle. Comparing the two mentioned responses of the vehicle could be used to prove that there is a negligible difference between the steady-state and transient centre of(More)
Characterising the coupling between the occupant and vehicle seat is necessary to understand the transmission of vehicle seat vibration to the human body. In this study, the vibration characteristics of the human body coupled with a vehicle seat were identified in frequencies up to 100 Hz. Transmissibilities of three volunteers seated on two different(More)
The attempts to summarize the knowledge about the human body's response to vibration, merely by introducing a physical or empirical model do not reflect a modern understanding of the effects of vibration on body comfort or fatigue. Several studies have demonstrated that fatigue leads to impairment of the ability to perform tasks. Although the performance of(More)
Although much is known about human body vibration discomfort, there is little research data on the effects of vibration on vehicle occupant drowsiness. A laboratory experimental setup has been developed. Vibration was applied to the volunteers sitting on the vehicle seat mounted on the vibration platform. Seated volunteers were exposed to a Gaussian random(More)
