9780123030412: Handbook of Human Vibration

This book explains, in concise chapters, the diversity and complexity of what is known concerning human responses to vibration. The book covers both whole body vibration and hand-transmitted vibration and contains pictorial models of the relevant variables, as well as experimental data and epidemiological studies. The study of human vibration incorporates psychology, mathematics, physiology, engineering, medicine, and statistics, and the Handbook of Human Vibration is written to assist both students of the subject and those addressing practical problems. The text does not depend on an advanced knowledge of mathematics or a familiarity with the jargon from the various disciplines, and is accessible to all persons interested in human vibration, including medical doctors, engineers, lawyers, scientists, trade union officials and administrators.

  • Summarizes current understanding of the many human responses to vibration, including both whole-body and hand-transmitted vibration
  • Presents experimental data and appropriate models so that readers can address practical problems
  • Contains a large, multidisciplinary glossary of terms
  • Features an extensive bibliography and guide to national and international standards

From the Back Cover:

This book commences with an introduction to both vibration and possible human responses to vibration. Understanding of human responses to vibration is considered in two parts: whole-body vibrations (Chapters 2 to 12) and hand-transmitted vibration (Chapters 13 to 19).

Review:

By bringing together and organizing a mass of laboratory and field research findings on the effects of whole-body and hand-transmitted vigration on human health and performace, Griffin has made an invaluable contribution to the study and understanding of human vibration. No one with a serious interest in this area can afford not to have ready access to this book.
--HUMAN FACTORS SOCIETY BULLETIN
This book represents a major landmark in the evolution of the subject of human response to vibration. It comprehensively integrates fundamental principles with practical application to provide a complete handbook for student, researcher, and practitioner. The book is well written and clearly presents the rapid development of the subject, especially over the past twenty years...The organization of the book has been clearly thought through...Ten comprehensive appendices of useful supporting material add to the self-contained and complete nature of the text. The material is clearly presented and discussion informed and inspired...No longer does one have to search through separate and diverse publications. The essential human vibration is now in one volume which is undoubtedly the classic work in this area.
