Evaluation and improvement of suspension seat vibration isolation performance

Project start:01.09.2002
Project end:31.12.2005
Project number:G3RD-CT-2002-00827
Institute position in the project:Partner
Project leader at the institute:Juraj Stein

The main goal of the project was to improve methods of vehicle drivers protection against whole-body vibration, that are urgently required to assist vehicle manufacturers and operators in complying with European Directive 2002/44/EC. This directive limits the maximum daily permitted vibration exposure and came into force of law for all EU member states by July 2005.

Some of the most important contributions of the Institute related to vibration analysis and active suspension systems include:
Vehicles and earth moving machines concerned:
Vehicle 1
Vehicle 2
Vehicle 3
Vehicle 4
