Abstract:

The objective of this Phase I proposal is to demonstrate specific mine-blast-resistant crew seat design concepts that can attenuate or absorb the high G loading, with lowest weight and cost possible. A computer simulation will be presented to identify therequired shock absorber characteristics. Various shock absorber devices will be evaluated and selected for mine-blast-resistant crew seat applications. Two mine-blast-resistant crew seat design concepts using a generic floor-mounted vehicle seat will bedemonstrated along with a system weight and cost budgets. Mine blast shock absorber system applicable to all military and civilian vehicles exposed to landmine threats. Improved vehicle protection technologies and improved analysis and design tools forvehicle acceleration events such as mine blasts. Lightweight and low-cost shock absorber devices for military and civilian vehicle industries.
