Comparison of Passive Seat Suspension with Different Configuration of Seat Pads and Active Seat Suspension4/1/2008 - Conference papersThrough modeling, this paper analyzes the performance of vehicle operators when subjected to vibration from rough road conditions, and quanttifies the energy transmission in the presence of specialized seat padding and active suspension.
11/1/2006 - Conference papersResearchers performed laboratory studies on four passive and two semi-active seat suspension designs. These six seat suspension systems were tested and analyzed, for vertical vibration only, using the ISO 5007 Standard.
11/1/2006 - Information CircularsNIOSH researchers conducted a study to gather additional data to support earlier findings that NIOSH seats, with unique viscoelastic foam padding, are improved designs for coal mine shuttle cars.
