Modeling of RU. Foam Behavior - Applications in the Field of Automotive Seats 960513
This article treats of the study of polyurethane foams behavior. After presenting the validation of the mathematical model which has been chosen for this complex material, we will show different applications of this modeling in the field of automotive seats: especially the H-point determination, the study of the pressure distribution at Occupant/Seat interface and the crash behavior.
