Dynamic Simulation of Flight Passenger Seats

The approval of aircraft seats for air traffic strongly depends upon the seat structures’ performance under emergency landing conditions. In the progress of seat certification the legislator demands the seat developers to provide evidence of meeting several structural and biomechanical limits like HIC value, spinal loads and integrity of load paths. Within the scope of this work the applicability of dynamic simulation with LS-Dyna for this aircraft application is being investigated.
