    The effects of shore hardness, static load, frequency, and intensity of vibration on the amplitude and dynamic force effects of vibration were studied in conditions corresponding to those occurring in vibrotactile sensitivity measurements. The measurements were performed on three silicon plates of known shore hardness. The results indicated that the effect of differences in elasticity on the vibration amplitudes was evident at lower frequencies up to about 200 Hz whereas at higher frequencies the amplitudes remained at the same level, regardless of elasticity. On dynamic force the effect of elasticity was observed at all frequencies studied (50-500 Hz). The static load of the contractor had only minimal effects on amplitudes and dynamic force levels at the loads used (1-3N).
