A comfort comparison of a foam seat against a seat with an auxetic spring skeleton
Languages of publication
This paper presents a comfort analysis of two different office chair types. The first is made of foam and the second is comprised of auxetic springs with foam upholstery. Several steps of quasi-static loads are chosen for comfort analysis in order to assess the dependence of measures of comfort on the mechanical properties of the applied structural solutions. Numerical analysis is performed by means of ABAQUS software – this allows the comparison and selection of optimal structures with respect to comfort requirements.
