Energy-based evaluation method of dissipative properties of a biomechanical system
J. Barbora, J. Mevald
pages 18 - +7p., full text

Many hardly acceptable simplifying assumptions are related to vibration load evaluation of biomechanical system, concerning sitting driver or passenger, and its interaction with mechanical system of the seat. The study is focused on those assumptions and presents other important factors, yet neglected when optimizing seats in terms of population range. The interaction of the biomechanical system and the seat is more or less given by the individual driver – seat couple. The study proposes peak values of the energy flow rate, its participation on the dissipation, total dissipation during the time of exposition and energy flow rate density as the criteria
