The International Standards Organization “Guide for the Evaluation of Human Exposure to Whole-Body Vibrations”, ISO 2631, is converted to a form usable for direct comparison with vibration data represented in power spectral density form. Comparisons are made between the ISO standard, the Urban Tracked Air Cushion Vehicle (UTACV) specification, and measured vibrations at the floorboard and seat of an automobile over smooth and rough roads. The data indicate that the ISO standard is less restrictive than the UTACV specification, and generally not restrictive enough to indicate the roughness of an automobile ride on a rough country road.
