AbstractAccording to some International and National Standards, frequency weighting is the preferred method for evaluation of human exposure to broadband vibration in buildings. The weighting functions are defined by' prot9type filters that may be implemented in analog or digital form. For this paper, frequency-weighting functions specified by the ISO 8041 and BS 6841 Standards were simulated in software as time-domain digital filters. Simulation procedures, software implementation, and verification of tolerance requirements are presented. The digital filters implemented here conformed closely to specifications in the Standards. A FORTRAN subroutine is provided for calculating the coefficients of the digital filters.
