NANR209 RESEARCH INTO THE HUMAN RESPONSE TO VIBRATION IN RESIDENTIAL ENVIRONMENTS - NO0202

Description
The aims of this study are to determine whether a dose-response relationship exists between vibration and the human response when exposed to it in a residential data nd social study information. A statistically robust sample size should be achieved. Subsequent analysis should further determine, if a relationship exists, an index that relates vibration levels of annoyance from a database of un-weighted vibration data in the x,y and z-axis, using existing or new descriptors as appropriate.
