Measurement of vibration and seat performance on a small marine craft

Marine craft field motion measurements for the VIBSEAT project took place during April 2003 on a prototype FSB2 lifeboat intended for use with the RNLI. Situations that caused discomfort or resulted in difficulty in operating the controls were identified from discussion with boat crews.
Measurements of the motion of the deck and the seat were obtained during these conditions.
These data were required by the VIBSEAT project to provide test motions for use in laboratory testing, mathematical modelling and for development of the test method.
