Abstract: The present study has established equal sensation curves for steering wheel handarm rotational vibration. Psychophysical response tests of 20 participants were performed using the category-ratio Borg CR10 scale procedure. The test stimuli used were sinusoidal vibrations at 22 third octave band centre frequencies in the range from 3 to 400 Hz, with amplitudes in the range from 0.06 to 30 m/s2 r.m.s. A multivariate regression analysis was performed on the mean Borg CR10 intensity values as a function of the two independent parameters of the vibration frequency and amplitude. The results suggested a nonlinear dependency of the perceived intensity on both the steering wheel rotational vibration frequency and amplitude. A sixth-order polynomial model has been proposed as a best fit regression model.
