CASIMIR/Automotive: A Software for the virtual Assessment of Static and Dynamic Seating Comfort 2009-01-2311
The software CASIMIR/Automotive represents a virtual process chain for the development of seats. Integrated in standard software tools it enables the user to investigate a great variety of possible seat optimisations with marginal effort.
Within this paper the steps starting with the setup of the finite-element-model of the metallic seat structure through to the complete occupant-seat model are shown. Finally exemplary results of a typical application are presented to demonstrate the software's capabilities.
