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 vehicle drivers under fatigue conditions has been investigated in many types of environments, there is insufficient research about the…

Effect Of Vibration Amplitude Level On Seated Occupant Reaction Time

The past decade has seen the rapid development of vibration comfort in the automotive industry. However, little attention has been paid to vibration drowsiness. Eighteen male volunteers were

COGNITIVE REACTION TIME PERFORMANCE AND SUBJECTIVE DROWSINESS: A CRITICAL EVALUATION OF THE EFFECT OF WHOLE-BODY VIBRATIONS

Findings suggested that exposure to vibration even as low as 20-minutes may attribute to the reduction of alertness level, and the association between exposure to WBV and drowsiness level was investigated.

The normal vehicle forces effects of a two in-wheel electric vehicle towards the human brain on different road profile maneuver

A twelve degrees of freedom (12 DOF) human biodynamic model is incorporated with a two in-wheel electric car model to investigate the effect of vertical vibration towards the human brain based on different types of road profile and maneuver.

Deleterious effects of whole‐body vibration on the spine: A review of in vivo, ex vivo, and in vitro models

A summary of whole‐body vibration parameters is provided; reviews in vivo, ex vivo, and in vitro models for spinal pathologies resulting from whole‐ body vibration are reviewed; and suggestions to address the gaps in translating injury biomechanics data to inform clinical practice are offered.

The Physiology of Auto Racing: A Brief Review.

The purpose of this article is to review the major physiologic challenges of auto racing and summarize what is currently known about athletes in this sport.

Redox Implications of Extreme Task Performance: The Case in Driver Athletes

These redox mechanisms appear to promote physiological stress during race car driving and impair the performance of driver athletes, and the current analysis utilizesRace car driving as a representative example.

Vibration suppression in flexible structures using hybrid active and semi-active control

This thesis presents a new hybrid active and semi-active control method for vibration suppression in flexible structures. The method uses a combination of a semi-active device and an active control

A Study on the Characteristics of Vibration in Seat System

The characteristics of vibration in the seat system are presented using the analysis of Finite Element Method (FEM). The Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) performance should be managed from the

Vibration and the Human Spine

Three peaks of enhanced transmissibility corresponding to the resonant frequency of the spinal system were found and it was found that the greatestTransmissibility of vibatory input occurs at the first resonan frequency (5Hz) where marked enhancement of vibrational input occurs as vibrations pass through the spinalSystem.

Whole body vibration--a critical review.

This paper critically reviews the existing literature and summarizes the known health effects of WBV, and warns health professionals of potential ill effects that may result from exposure to WBV in combination with other environmental stressors.

The subjective equivalence of sinusoidal and random whole-body vibration in the sitting position (an experimental study using the "floating reference vibration" method).

It is shown that subjects generally appear to be slightly more sensitive to random excitation than to sinusoidal vibrations, and this difference of sensitivity decreases at higher frequencies, but was observed in all three translational directors.

The results obtained by this method indicate that the mean equivalent discomfort produced by all the random motions employed in the experiment may be predicted by weighting the vibration spectra with a filter network.

A MODAL ANALYSIS OF WHOLE-BODY VERTICAL VIBRATION, USING A FINITE ELEMENT MODEL OF THE HUMAN BODY

Abstract A two-dimensional model of human biomechanical responses to whole-body vibration has been developed, by using the finite element method. Beam, spring and mass elements were used to model the
