The Estimation of SEAT Values from Transmissibility Data 2001-01-0392

Seat Effective Amplitude Transmissibility (SEAT) values can be obtained from direct measurements at seat track and top or estimated from transmissibility data and seat track input. Vertical transmissibility was measured for sixteen seats and six subjects on the Ford Vehicle Vibration Simulator, and these 96 functions used to estimate the seat top response for rough road input. SEAT values were calculated, and good correlation to values computed from direct seat top measurements obtained (R2 of 0.86). Averaging transmissibilities and direct seat measurements over the 6 subjects to obtain correlations for the 16 seats improved R2 to 0.94, validating this approach.
