Back Plate/Seat Interaction

ES-2 Research Results

  • Data for two out of seventeen vehicle models crash tested suggest back plate “grabbing” by intruding structure. Large back plate loads occurring early in time relative to the lower spine loads were observed.

  • Back plate loads and corresponding momentum contribution were low for the remaining fifteen vehicle models.
