Seat Adjust Mechanism

In this example, the adjustment mechanism of an automotive seat was simulated to calculate various parameters such as torque required at the height adjustment handwheels for different occupant loads, and the range of motion of the occupant’s hip joint.

The analysis was also used to determine loads between various components and to calculate stresses in the leaf return spring. MBD was the ideal tool of choice for this stress analysis, as it provides accurate input loads without having to make any simplifying assumptions to represent the loading.
