Seat Lateral Support Evaluation With SAE Manikin
In this report, we proposed an objective evaluation method of the seat lateral support according to the mechanisms to create the performance differences that we reported previously . First, we showed an effect of scrutinizing Seat Pressure Distribution's change during vehicle turn to gain a quantitative index for explaining subjective evaluation results. Second, we showed the examples of the differences of the results according to the subjects and selected the best-correlated subject among them with a market survey result. Then, we contrived a loading condition to SAE manikin to reproduce the subject's Seat Pressure Distribution. Final, by a specific calculation of the Seat Pressure Distribution, the method to indicate the performance rating that had strong correlation with market survey was clarified.
