Using CAE & Optimisation Tools to Design Lighter and Safer Train Seats – Marine Favre-Decloux, Project and Support Engineer


To meet various safety and
durability targets GRM Consulting
have successfully used Finite
Element Analysis (FEA) and
optimisation tools to design three
generations of train seats. Physical
dynamic injury and integrity tests
have confirmed the performance
prediction and helped to improve
FE models and their correlation to
test. A close working environment
between analysts and designers lead
to significant weight savings whilst
maintaining all seat performance and
safety requirements.
