Sample text

Handwheels should only be used if considerable force must be transmitted. To sum up. The critical moment in the operation of an equipment is when some decision is taken, and as a result some control is used. The reliability of the equipment is bound up with the decision the operator makes, the actual control he or she operates and how it is used, and these can all be affected by the operator's personal comfort and working conditions, in addition to his or her interpretation of a display, and the layout and design of controls.

2). 2 Stand-byredundancy. Another form frequently employed particularly in signal processing applications is 'parallel redundancy'. 3, A and B are identical devices, both capable of performing their function independently. In the event of failure of either of the elements A or B, the overall system function will not be lost. I -; ! 3 Parallelredundancy. Many other configurations are possible; a parallel system of say three or more elements where the overall function is unaffected by the loss of one element, but the loss of two elements may result in reduction of function but not complete loss.

Thus the effects of vibration depend on the nature of the vibration, and on its frequency. For instance, vibration may be periodic, as in aircraft, or non-periodic as in a ship in a rough sea. 1 and 1 cycle per second (Hz) can produce a form of sea sickness. From 1 to 15 or even 30 Hz is the range of greatest importance, because it is here that the chief resonances occur in the human body; it is also the band of frequencies in which many machines and vehicles vibrate, and in which vibration is particularly difficult to suppress.
