Cockpit seat in crash & biomechanics
Today, aeroplane cockpit seats are still dimensioned using an extensive array of prototype tests. Digital simulation can be used as a substitute to reduce study time and cost.
The aim of the SICCRIO project is to develop a crash test simulation model that takes into account biomechanical analysis criteria, and ultimately to size and optimise a cockpit seat in terms of mass and ergonomics.
The model developed reproduces the behaviour of the seat and its occupant under transient dynamic loading.
