Biodynamics of the seated human body with vertical excitation: Dynamic pressure distributions and vibration modes

Biodynamics of the seated human body with vertical excitation: Dynamic pressure distributions and vibration modes

This study seeks to advance the understanding of the biodynamic response of human body sitting on both rigid and soft seats exposed to whole-body vertical vibration at low frequencies (1 to 15 Hz) in terms of the dynamic pressure distribution. The vibration modes of the seated human body will also be investigated so as to understand the mechanisms associated with the resonances in biodynamic responses. A finite-element model will be developed to represent the dynamic pressure distribution and the vibration modes of the seated human body.
