Funding body

Brunel University

 

Project description

Certification by Analysis of a next generation economy aircraft seat required the use of implicit and explicit codes to develop a methodology development for static and dynamic certification compliance:

  • Design Feasibility / load paths, sizing and material selection
  • Prediction of seat interface loads against airline limits
  • Design optimisation of components under static / dynamic loading including damaged floor condition.
  • Incorporation of uncertainty for robustness/analysis accuracy.
