Abstract/Summary

This final design review (FDR) document outlines the senior design project being carried out by a team of mechanical engineering undergraduate students attending California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo for Safran Seats in Santa Maria, CA. The project originally was to design, build, and test a universal attachment to secure a widebody business class seat to seven aircraft models with different seat track geometry. The goal was to design, document, and create a finished product that fits design, weight, and manufacturing requirements, as well as passes static 9G FWD testing. Structural analysis, manufacturing analysis, FEA, and CAD assemblies will also be handed over to Safran as the last step in the delivery of the final prototype. Additionally, any necessary bending, torsion, and stress concentration analysis will be completed and summarized for structural parts. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the state of California, deliverables had to be modified as the team was no longer allowed to finish the physical prototype and perform the final 9G test within the Safran facilities. This document describes the full timeline of the project, including background research, project requirements, expected final deliverables, concept ideation and preliminary concept design, final design and supporting analysis, the manufacturing plan for all components, the planned tests for design verification, and next steps for the project. Additionally, it outlines progress since the Critical Design Review (CDR) document was released with the modified deliverables due to the COVID-19 outbreak and shelter in place orders.
