Furthermore, the shapes of the frequency dependencies depend on whether the motion is quantified in terms of vibration displacement, velocity or acceleration. Claims that the body is most sensitive to any single frequency of vibration require clarification and elaboration; they are meaningless without stating the units in which the vibration magnitude is quantified. g. same degree of discomfort or loss of performance) at different vibration frequen­ cies. Such studies have yielded, for example, a series of 'equivalent comfort contours' in which similar discomfort will be experienced at all points along 2.

By a change of posture) there will also tend to be a change in the degree to which the vibration has a detrimental effect. If both the location and the mechanism of the relevant influence of vibration are known it may be possible to predict the effect of a vibration from a knowledge of its transmission to the relevant part. In practice this approach is often complex and the temptation to make naive assumptions should be resisted. For example, the effects of vibration on vision cannot be predicted simply from measures of the transmission of translational vibration from a seat to the head.

W h i t h a m and Griffin, 1977). However, most real seats have backrests and the different designs of backrest may have different effects on posture and the transmission of vibration to the body. For fundamental research the rigid flat seat without backrest provides the most repeatable, if somewhat artificial, condition and it is for this reason that it has so often been used. 2 Effect of vibration magnitude When the magnitude of vibration is increased there is usually an increase in discomfort.
