Abstract:
This study aimed to perform a pressure distribution analysis of aeronautical seats, that use joint reclining mechanism, in which both bottom and back cushions recline together, based on a same axis, on the bottom cushion front edge. The main tool used on this study was the Xsensor equipment, which features individual pressure maps to bottom cushion and back cushion, presenting relevant information such as peak pressure, average pressure and effective contact area. Significant improvements were observed on the pressure distribution, when comparing the adopted reclining mechanism with the conventional one.
