A search of existing literature on human reactions to vibrations was made to obtain a guide for establishing norms for crews on naval ships. Such norms are recommended as a result of this study. Further research programs are outlined. This report defines levels of motions and vibrations to which crew members are exposed during surface ship operations. The levels of vibration are also compared with those for structural items and machinery. No attempt is made to evaluate all work in this field only that considered pertinent to problems arising from shipboard vibration is included.
