Mechanical vibration and shock — Coupling forces at the man-machine interface for hand-transmitted vibration — Part 1: Measurement and evaluation

This document describes the coupling parameters between the hands of a machine operator and a vibrating surface of the machine.

The coupling between the hand and the vibrating surface can be described using different parameters and component parts of these parameters:

—    force parameters, such as push, pull and grip;

—    parameters such as pressure exerted on skin.

In addition, Annexes A, B, C, D and E provide guidelines for measuring procedures, the measurement of the force and pressure parameters, and information on the requirements for measuring instrumentation, as well as a calibration method.

This document does not deal with forces which act tangentially to the hand.
