Appendix B

Appendix C

The following appendix contains the tabulated data for each of the seats tested. For most vehicles the front driver and passenger seat data are contained in a single table. In general, the data from the seat tested to failure are contained on the left side of the table and the data from the seat deflected to 75% of the ultimate load deflections are on the right side. This format was followed regardless of whether a driver or passenger seat was tested to failure.
