Title
Methods to Evaluate Impact Characteristics of Seat Back Mounted IFE Monitors
Scope
<p>This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) defines means to assess the effect of changes to seat back mounted IFE monitors on blunt trauma to the head and post-impact sharp edges. The assessment methods described may be used for evaluation of changes to seat back monitor delethalization (blunt trauma and post-test sharp edges) and head injury criterion (HIC) attributes (refer to ARP6448 Appendix A Items 3 and 6, respectively). Application is focused on type A-T (transport airplane) certified seat installations.</p>
Rationale
<p>The effects of in-flight entertainment (IFE) monitor changes on a seat design’s attributes as measured by Head Injury Criterion (HIC) (refer to ARP6448 Item 6) and sharp edges (refer to ARP6448 Item 3) can be difficult, as there are no standardized methods to assess the IFE monitor change at the component level. This recommended practice defines component test methods and evaluation criteria for IFE monitor changes.</p>
