In this article, a comprehensive overview of the global state-of-the-art in the development of aircraft passenger seat crashworthiness is presented. With the increasing use of aeroplanes as means of transport in everyday life, the probability of accidents and injuries has also increased. This trend makes the safety of human life a top priority for the airplane designers. Based on a large number of studies coming from different industrial branches, military organizations, and academic centers, this article presents a review of the crashworthiness of aircraft passenger seats from the aspect of research approaches, accident investigations, mechanism analysis of occupant injuries and aircraft damage, strategies of occupant protection, and crashworthy design (crash energy management design) and performance of aircraft structures during collision scenarios.

Abstract

In this article, a comprehensive overview of the global state-of-the-art in the development of aircraft passenger seat crashworthiness is presented. With the increasing use of aeroplanes as means of transport in everyday life, the probability of accidents and injuries has also increased. This trend makes the safety of human life a top priority for the airplane designers. Based on a large number of studies coming from different industrial branches, military organizations, and academic centers, this article presents a review of the crashworthiness of aircraft passenger seats from the aspect of research approaches, accident investigations, mechanism analysis of occupant injuries and aircraft damage, strategies of occupant protection, and crashworthy design (crash energy management design) and performance of aircraft structures during collision scenarios. Finally, the trends in scientific research regarding the improvement of aircraft seat structure design and material composition are summarized.
