Weight Optimization of a Seating System 2012-28-0013
Seating System is one of the important parameter which influences the performance and cost of vehicle. As the seat weight is more vehicles' fuel efficiency goes down and the cost increases. The objective is weight optimization of a seating structure of TATA ACE 2nd Row Bench seat which is already a validated model, without compromising the performance, regulatory and non-regulatory compliances of the seating system. The model is undergone Topology optimization for the basic run which is one of the regulatory tests. Depending upon the results the parts are modified and final design is undergone the same regulatory test.
