Abstract : Easy-to-use Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools, known as accommodation models, are needed by the ground vehicle designers when developing the interior workspace for the occupant. The TARDEC Fixed Heel Point (FHP): Driver CAD Accommodation Model described in this verification report is applicable to truck-like ground vehicles and may also be used in workstations that require the crew to interact with vehicle controls and non-driving displays using hands, horizontal directed vision, and adjustable seats. The FHP: Driver CAD model is a parametric model that is intended to provide the composite boundaries representing the body of the defined target design population, including posture prediction. Clearances between the occupant and surrounding interior vehicle surfaces have been added per MIL-STD-1472G. Direct vision zones and ground intercept have been added based on MIL-STD-1472G and SAE Recommended Practice J1050. The intention of verification is to build confidence in the CAD accommodation model. Model verification included ten test scenarios for comparing the FHP: Driver CAD model outputs against predefined requirements and acceptability criteria.
