Abstract:
Two front seat base designs were developed using finite element analysis methods to meet automotive OEM requirements. The material-process combinations explored were injection molded VALOX® HS433 polyester resin and compression molded continuous glass reinforced AZDEL® PM10400 polypropylene composite material. The optimized seat bases weigh under two pounds and meet four automotive load-deflection requirements: Anti-submarining, ingress/egress, front crossbar and rear crossbar loads.
