Abstract
Practical problems involved in measuring hand-arm vibration in industry are covered. The selection of the best transducer and its correct method of mounting, including the difficulties presented by high impulsive forces is presented. The most suitable type of analysis including the possibility of characterizing the vibration by a single figure using a frequency weighting network is discussed. The instrumentation needed to deal with the range of frequency and amplitude is considered. A few results are given of the vibration levels found in the metalworking industry.
