Abstract:

This report provides preliminary guidance for laboratory testing of marine shock isolation seats. The purpose of the test is to demonstrate the effectiveness of a passive seat in reducing simulated wave impact loads in a laboratory before installation in a high-speed planing craft. It includes testing procedures, instrumentation system guidance, data processing requirements, test criteria, and test report contents. This guide presents a collection of Navy preferences and expectations that will be updated as new criteria or techniques are developed.
