Study of pilot’s comfortness in the cockpit seat of a flight simulator

Study of pilot’s comfortness in the cockpit seat of a flight simulator

Pilot’s seat cushion parameters on seating comfort have been investigated using finite element approach. Uniaxial compression test has been conducted on seat cushion foam to establish the stress-strain relationship. Ogden Hyper-elastic model is found more suitable compared to Mooney Rivline and New-hooken...
