Title:
Development of a 3D Finite Element Model of Thigh and Pelvis: SAE Technical Paper 2004-01-2132 
Abstract:
The development times of car seats decrease while the demand for more comfortable seats increases at the same time. To fulfill this trade-off, numerical simulation of the body/seat interaction could be used. Therefore numerical models of the sitting human are needed. For this reason a 3D-FE-model of the thigh and pelvis of a 50 th percentile male has been developed. The surfaces of the thigh and of the bones were gathered by a laser scanner. For the undeformed outer shape a test subject was chos...    »
