My today’s train trip is being quite interesting. As someone sat on a seat it wobbled. It made me think “how much would it hold”. Well, I enjoyed the seat design with it’s tubular shape and table attached to it.
This made me think also. How would I model this?
I have a few inputs/assumptions I already can imagine:
Assuming a 120Kg (more or less 250 pounds) person
Isotropic behaviour structural steel
Perfect welding connections (I know I know but it’s just a rough analysis)
Maybe these boundary conditions, hold the seat in place. I will also assume only one seat is present instead of the hole bundle.
On my next post I will follow up on the model building.
