Mechanical vibration and shock - Hand-arm vibration - Method for measuring the vibration transmissibility of resilient materials when loaded by the hand-arm system (ISO 13753:1998)
This International Standard specifies a procedure to determine the vibration transmissibility of a resilient materialwhen loaded by the hand-arm system.
The method is applicable to all materials which behave in a linear way. It is expected that this is realized in mostelastic foam and rubber materials and, provisionally, in woven cloths. The method can be applied to mixed systems, e.g. a cloth material attached to a foam or rubber base.
It is expected that the results of this laboratory test will be used in screening materials used for vibration attenuationon the handles of tools and for gloves. This will enable rank ordering of materials for gloves, but will not necessarilypredict the transmissibility of the gloves fabricated from these materials (for this purpose, see ISO 10819).
