AbstractDifferent occupant-seat models were explored for vibration comfort analyses of automotive seats. A nonlinear model of a seat cushion and its support mechanism was developed based on the measured static and dynamic characteristics. Subsequently, analyses and experiments were performed to examine the applicability of some selected linear occupant models.
