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.
