Title

Human Vibration during Fastener Installation

Abstract

Many manufacturing industries, including aerospace and automotive, are at significant risk for cumulative trauma disorders from high repetition, long duration fastener installation tasks. Ergonomic risk factors including shocks, vibrations and sustained uncomfortable postures are often present in these tasks. We present a data collection methodology and data analysis techniques that considers both static and dynamic forces during fastener installation. The result can be used for tool evaluation and selection.
