Applications of hand-arm models in the investigation of the interaction between man and machine.

by Jahn R, Hesse M

The mode of vibration of hand-held tools cannot be considered without knowledge of the influence of the operator's hand-arm system. Therefore some technical applications of hand-arm models were realized for drill hammers by the University of Dortmund. These applications are a software program to simulate the motion of machine components, a horizontal drilling jig, and a chucking device in a drilling rig.
