Appendix A Part 1 of 2
For the figures in this appendix, in general, the thinner lines represent the data from seats tested to failure and the thicker lines represent the data from seats deflected to approximately 75% of the ultimate load deflection. The straight lines represent the best fit through the data as determined by the method described in Section 3 and Appendix B. For the convenience of the reader, the key on each graph identifies the driver and passenger seat data. However, since the driver and passenger seats were symmetrical this was assumed to have no bearing on the results.
