ABC’s of Seat Comfort: A Historical Perspective 2019-01-0407

Although subjective measurements are critical for qualifying seat comfort in terms of good or bad, objective measurements are the basis for quantifying these differences and ultimately controlling seat comfort performance through engineering design specs, targets, and/or guidelines. Many objective automotive seat comfort tools and techniques used today are based on methods derived in the past. This paper examines the engineering problems and solutions that make these historical influences relevant today. Particular focus is given to design considerations for the A-surface, B-surface, and the compressed surface of the seating system.
