ESI-VSS - Automotive Dynamic Comfort Simulation

Dynamic Comfort Dynamic Comfort Process

Using one single core model of the seat, ESI Virtual Seat Solution (VSS) predicts seat transfer function for an occupied seat. Consistent chaining of seat manufacturing, occupant seating and vibration tests ensures predictive seat transfer function evaluation.

Dynamic Comfort Chaining Process

Since seats contain lots of components, it's very difficult to find the factors that influence the dynamic comfort of the seat. We tried to figure this out using VIRTUAL SEAT SOLUTION and reached our goal. This new way of working will help us save money and time effectively.

Experimental Set-up

The models and methodology developed with Virtual Seat Solution enable the computation of predictive results, using only physical parameters and without any tuning of filtering. This good correlation between simulation and test results confirms the ability to assess the riding seat comfort in a full virtual process.

Human models library

Human models library

Human models from different anthropometries and populations are embedded and available in VSS, such as 5th, 50th, 95th percentile human models developed in partnership with HYUNDAI Motor Company. These human models can be used to evaluate how the dynamic comfort of the seat. Read more on human model.
