The aim of this study has been to develop a measurement method to study the absorption of vibration energy on exposure to high frequency vibrations.
The developed measurement method consists of specially constructed equipment for measurement and analysis of the subject's absorption of vibration energy.
In this study the energy absorption from the exposure to white noise vibration within the frequency-range 20 to 5000 Hz has been studied.
Five female and five male subjects were involved in this study.
The results show that the developed method of measurement works satisfactorily and gives reliable results for the energy absorption within the frequency-range 20 to 4000 Hz.
Furthermore, the results show that the subjects absorb vibration energy even for frequencies above 1000 Hz.
The results also show that the energy absorption is dependent upon factors such as gender, the level of the vibration and the frequency.
