How rocket seats are made

How rocket seats are made

How rocket seats are made

Hi everyone,
The seat is one of the most critical components of the spacecraft, so thinking about it, I intend to study ways to improve its construction, performing forging on the main parts to improve their properties, I intend to focus on a specific part. So I need help with some questions:
Which of the integral parts of a chair are made by forging?
Which part of the chair is most critical to crew safety?
What is the alloy and composition most used in the manufacture of this part?
Hot processing, cold processing?
The matrices are made of what material and composition?

RE: How rocket seats are made


What research have you done to try and answer those questions yourself and what did you find out?

“Do not worry about your problems with mathematics, I assure you mine are far greater.” Albert Einstein

Research, no time for that - that's why the questions were asked 😊

It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. (Sherlock Holmes - A Scandal in Bohemia.)

RE: How rocket seats are made

Started looking on the NASA website, and I found 3 very interesting documents with a lot of information, but to develop my project I need more detailed information. I attached the 3 documents.

Your second link is literally a process layout on how a new seat was conceptualized, designed, and tested... I'm not sure what else you could ever want.
