Abstract:

A series of experiments was performed to explore biodynamic response and tracking performance in various whole-body vibration environments. The primary experimental variable was the direction of the vibration Xpitch, Yroll, Z, roll, pitch, and yaw. Tracking axis pitch or roll and control-stick spring constant were additional experimental variables. Data from these experiments were analyzed to derive engineering descriptions of biodynamic response and tracking behavior, and a model was developed to relate tracking performance to biodynamic response parameters.
