Abstract
For experimental and analytical assessments of coupled hand-tool systems and vibration attenuation mechanisms, it is highly desirable to develop a hand-arm simulator and mechanical-equivalent models of the human hand and arm. For this purpose, a number of biodynamic models have been proposed to characterized the human hand and arm response to vibration (MIWA et al., 1979; GURRAM et al., 1995; ISO-10068, 1998, MISHOE et al., 1977). Although different models have evolved over the past 30 years, only minimal evidence exists regarding their applicability to either analytical or experimental studies of the coupled system (JAHN et al., 1986). A comparative analysis of the reported models can provide important information regarding their potential for applications in both experimental and analytical assessment methods.
