Shoxs’ technical team can help maritime agencies design custom simulations or product testing to assess seat performance and estimated crew exposure levels based on their unique conditions. We use a combination of numerical and computer-aided modeling, laboratory drop tests, and on-water trials to validate the performance of our products.
The Shoxs impact science team simulates the response of a seat to deck acceleration using Matlab®, a scientific computing software package. We have created numerical models that facilitate simulating the dynamic response of seats to wave impacts. With this software, variables such as occupant weight, isolator characteristics, and input accelerations can be easily modified, and the effects on mitigation performance are then immediately observed.
Our consultants can then recommend a tailored impact mitigation strategy that fits the agencies’ needs and budget.
