Subjective response to combined vibrations acting on man via the seat
Zur Beurteilung von Schwingungsgemischen, die über die Sitzfläche auf den Menschen einwirken [in German]
Subjects who were exposed to vibrations composed of several harmonics were asked to compare the combination of harmonics with a reference vibration of 5Hz. The amplitude of the reference frequency was varied until the subject felt a stress equal to that of the combined vibrations. It was thus possible to ascertain quantitatively the influence of harmonics in vibrations on subjective response.

Human response to transportation noise and vibration.
A historical review of research carried out during the period 1963-1973 at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, Southampton, United Kingdom, on a number of aspects of human response to transportation noise and vibration. Individual sections are devoted to: sonic boom; subjective acoustics tests procedures; human response to vibration (vibration and vision, subjective response to vibration, physical response of the human body, vibration experienced by man in vehicles); effects of noise on performance and comfort; development of a mathematical model to determine the economic impact of achieving reduced community noise levels from aircraft; community noise studies.
Journal of Sound and Vibration, 8 June 1973, Vol.28, No.3, p.375-401. Illus. 52 ref.
