Vibration is one of the important considerations in design. Nowadays, almost every family has the car. So, it becomes most important to study the vehicle vibrations. Analysis of human body physical model experimentally when situated in automotive vehicle. The model fabrication is done on the basis of comparing real human body parameters with human physical models used in the ISO 10068:2012 standard. This article revealed effect of vibration transferring to the specific parts of human body due to vibration transferring from Seat to Height (STH) and from Hands on steering. The focus of the present study was to determine the vibration output from fabricated model. The vibrations as input to the model are from automotive vehicles. The input verses output vibration characteristics will be useful to study effects of vibration on human health. The human body is considered as a simple spring, mass, damper system for analysis. This multi body model representative of the automotive postures found in the literature were investigated, one with and the other without a backrest support. The model was modified to suitably represent the different automotive postures with and without backrest supports, and validated by various experimental data from the published literature pertaining to the same postural conditions on the basis of the analytical study and the experimental.
