Acoustics and Vibration Section at the Institute of Naval Medicine  Seminar

Building 13/3017

Event details

ISVR Engineering Research Seminar


Most activities carried out by people involve some form of exposure to noise and vibration; these include the work conducted by the military.  The Acoustics and Vibration at the Institute of Naval Medicine (INM) provides specialist scientific advice on all matters relating to human exposure to noise and vibration.  This involves running courses on training people to become noise and vibration assessors, and conducting exposure assessment on occupational-related activities.  The seminar will look at the work of the INM and present some of the surveys that have been conducted on noise and vibration exposure.

Speaker information

Gurmail Paddan , Institute of Naval Medicine . I graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Bath University, followed by a PhD from the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton on the effects of vibration on the human body (biodynamics). I have worked on all aspects of humans and vibration including whole-body, hand-arm and motion sickness. I was a Senior Research Fellow at the ISVR before I took up the post of Head of Acoustics and Vibration at the Institute of Naval Medicine, Gosport. My current position involves measuring, assessing and offering advice on human exposure to both noise and vibration. I have published widely on human vibrations; I am a member of the British Standards committees of human exposure to vibration and on hearing protection.
