Abstract
A preliminary vibration survey was carried out on the Mobile Arctic Shelter developed by DREO/DCIEM and on the Nortrac 'Snotruk' whose chassis is incorporated in the shelter. Acceleration intensities were recorded in two axes (Y and Z) and a power spectral density analysis was carried out for twenty 1/3-octave bands covering the frequency spectrum from 1 to 100 Hz. Results indicate that the length of ride in these vehicles should be limited, depending on the terrain to be traversed, in accordance with I.S.O. Standards on Vibration Exposure. Poor terrain conditions and mechanical problems of the test vehicles prevented a thorough vibration study from being carried out.
