The launch of space craft generates extreme conditions, such as vibrations and acoustics that can affect the launch pad, space craft, and their payloads. The noise at launch and during the two-minute liftoff and transonic climb phase causes intense acoustic loads. These acoustic loads are the result of an intense acoustic environment generated by the interaction of the rocket-engine exhaust stream mixing with the atmosphere. Pyroshocks, that occur when spacecraft vehicle stages separate, cause… Expand

Effects of whole-body vibration waveform and display collimation on the performance of a complex manual control task.
TLDR
The results show that continuous control performance was disrupted by visual interference at frequencies above 1.6 Hz; closed-loop system transfer functions showed that visual interference increased the phase lags which impaired control performance. Expand
