Measuring and Modeling Support Forces of People to Assist in the Development of the ASPECT Manikin Weighting 1999-01-0961

The ASPECT (Automotive Seat and Package Evaluation and Comparison Tools) Program has developed the next generation SAE 3-D H-Point testing manikin. During the development of the ASPECT manikin, new data were collected on how people loaded different regions of a seat and how these loads varied with different postures. These data, along with a computer model of the ASPECT manikin, were used to assist in the development of a human-like weight distribution for the new seating device, the ASPECT manikin.
