Abstract:

Internationally, a growing concern has developed and widespread disagreement has occurred over the present methods for quantitatively describing and assessing the effects of vehicle vibrations on humans, and over the short- and the long-term effects of vibrations on drivers and occupants of heavy trucks, agricultural and earthmoving equipment, and military vehicles. None of the present methods is completely satisfactory in fact, most criteria were developed for low-level boulevard rides and are highly suspect when applied to the several vibrational levels conducted in earthmoving and military-type operations.
