Human perception thresholds, in both the presence and the absence of visual cues, and equal sensation contours for low frequency whole body pure yaw vibration were investigated. The results from these and other laboratory tests were combined with field test data for the human response to predominantly yaw vibration, caused by rotational oscillations of civil structures about a vertical axis of the human subjects, to provide guidelines for probable human response to pure yaw vibration at different levels in a variety of circumstances. Relationships have also been derived to allow assessment of the probable responses of occupants of fixed structures to motion which exposes them to the more common case of simultaneous yaw and horizontal translational components of vibration. © 1981.
