For that, we must measure vibration exposure. Vibration is the mechanical oscillations of an Intro - KB - Beautiful Vibrations about an equilibrium point.
The oscillations may be regular such as the motion of a pendulum or random such as the movement of a tire on a gravel road. The study of health effects of vibration require measures of the overall "pressure Vegetaciones = Βλαστήσεις - Μαρία Φαραντούρη* = Maria Farantouri* - 40 Χρόνια vibration energy generated by the vibrating equipment or structure.
Vibration enters the body from the part of the body or organ in contact with vibrating equipment. When a worker operates hand-held equipment such as a chain saw or jackhammer, vibration affects hands and arms.
Such an exposure is called hand-arm vibration exposure. When a worker sits or stands on a vibrating floor or seat, the vibration exposure affects almost the entire body and is called whole-body vibration exposure. The risk of vibration induced injury depends on the average daily exposure. An evaluation of the risk takes into account the intensity and frequency of the vibration, the duration years of exposure and the part of the body which receives the vibration energy.
Hand-arm vibration Intro - KB - Beautiful Vibrations damage to hands and fingers. It appears as damage to blood vessels, nerves and joints in the fingers. The resulting condition is known as white finger disease, Raynaud's phenomenon or hand-arm vibration syndrome HAVS. One of the symptoms is that affected fingers may turn white, especially when exposed to cold. Vibration-induced white finger disease also causes a loss of grip force and loss of sensitivity to touch. The health effect of whole-body vibration WBV is poorly understood.
Studies of drivers of heavy vehicles have revealed an increased incidence of the disorders of bowel and the circulatory, musculoskeletal and neurological systems. However, disorders of the nervous, circulatory and digestive systems are not specific to whole-body vibration exposure only. These disorders can be caused by a combination of various other working Displacement - M▲R▲5* - Signals With Shoes and life style factors rather than by one physical factor alone.
More information is available in the OSH Intro - KB - Beautiful Vibrations document Vibration - Health Effects that describes the effects of hand-arm vibration and whole body vibration. If we could watch a vibrating object in slow motion, you could see movements in different directions. Any vibration has two measurable quantities. How far amplitude or intensityand how fast frequency the object moves helps determine its vibrational characteristics.
The terms used to describe this movement are frequency, amplitude and acceleration. A vibrating object moves back and forth from its normal stationary position. A complete cycle of vibration occurs when the object moves from one extreme position to the other extreme, and back again.
The number of cycles that a vibrating object completes in one second is called frequency. The unit of frequency is hertz Hz. One hertz equals one cycle per second. A vibrating object moves to a certain maximum distance on either side of its stationary position. Amplitude is the distance from the stationary position to the extreme position on either side and is Intro - KB - Beautiful Vibrations in metres m.
The intensity of vibration depends on amplitude. The speed of a vibrating object varies from zero to a maximum during each cycle of vibration. It moves fastest as it passes through its natural stationary position to an extreme position. The vibrating object slows down as it approaches the extreme, where it stops and then moves in the opposite direction through the stationary position toward the other extreme.
Acceleration is a measure of how quickly speed changes with time. The magnitude of acceleration changes from zero to Berlin Advisor - Manu Chaman - Berlin Advisor EP maximum during each cycle of vibration. It increases as the vibrating object moves further from its normal stationary position.
Every object tends to vibrate at one particular frequency called the natural frequency. The measure of natural frequency depends on the composition of the object, its size, structure, weight and shape. If we apply a vibrating force on the object that has a frequency equal to the natural frequency of the object, it is a resonance condition.
A vibrating machine transfers the maximum amount of energy to an object when the machine vibrates at the object's resonant frequency. Contact with a vibrating machine transfers vibration energy to an organ s of the body. We know that vibration affects the organ in contact such as the hands.
But we do not fully understand how vibration may affect other parts of the Και Τι Να Πρωτοθυμηθείς - Ηλίας Γ. Βασιλαράκης* - Νοσταλγίες body or only a selected particular organ. The effect of vibration exposure also depends on the frequency of vibration. Each organ of the body has its own resonant frequency.
If exposure occurs at or near any of these Intro - KB - Beautiful Vibrations frequencies, the resulting effect is greatly increased. Segmental vibration exposure affects an organ, part or "segment" of the body. The most widely studied and most common type of segmental vibration exposure is hand-arm vibration exposure which affects the hands and arms. Exposed occupational groups include operators of chain saws, chipping tools, jackhammers, jack leg drills, grinders and many other workers who operate hand-held vibrating tools.
Whole body vibration energy enters the body through a seat or the floor, and it affects the entire body or a number of organs in the body. Exposed groups include operators of trucks, buses, tractors and those who work on vibrating floors. Table 1 Intro - KB - Beautiful Vibrations examples of vibration exposure in various industries.
