Renault uses ESI’s Virtual Seat Solution to virtually design a new car seat

Virtual Seat
Ground Transportation
The models and methodology developed with Virtual Seat Solution enable the computation of predictive results, using only physical parameters and without any tuning of filtering. This good correlation between simulation and test results confirms the ability to assess the riding seat comfort in a full virtual process.

Challenge

Validate a new production seat model with simulation Evaluate all comfort issues related to an automotive seat (manufacturing, occupant seating, occupied seat vibration transmissibility)

Benefits

Provide predictive and highly accurate results using Finite Elements Build a fully virtual preliminary design of a new seat and validate it with simulation Save on development costs and time Meet production targets
