Biodynamic responses of the finger-hand-arm system, such as apparent mass and mechanical impedance, characterize the relationship between the motion of the finger-hand-arm system and the dynamic force acting on the driving point, and they are useful for vibration exposure assessment. In the present study, a two-dimensional finite element (FE) model has been proposed to simulate the biodynamic responses of the fingerpad in vibration tests. The fingernail was supported by the rigid ground while… CONTINUE READING
