Special Issue "Human Response to Vibration"
A special issue of Vibration (ISSN 2571-631X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
In modern industrial environments, workers are still exposed to vibrations generated by machines, vehicles, tools, and heavy equipment. The detrimental effects of vibration on the human body have been largely documented in the scientific literature, but, to date, there are no studies outlining an accurate exposure–disorder relationship. The main reason is the complex nature of the human body: The effects of vibration not only vary from subject to subject, but also from the worker posture, habits, professional history, and environmental conditions.
This Special Issue will exchange knowledge about the effect of vibration on humans and increasing the understanding of the mechanisms of injury. We encourage the submission of both literature review articles and novel contributions in the field of assessment, modeling, reduction, and epidemiology of human vibration and shocks. Hopefully, papers will contribute to the identification of new standards for the assessment of risks related to exposure to vibration.
