This contribution is focused on the passive safety of the railway vehicles interiors. The passive safety has become a new area of the rail vehicles design. In the field of rail vehicles interior passive safety the computer simulations are most widely used. The computer simulations must be based on relevant material data. For some common materials (eg. steel, aluminium, etc.) the material data are ascertainable. The interiors of rail vehicles contain quite specific materials frequently. One of the material with more complicated mechanical properties is polyurethane foam (PUR). The aim of this paper is to present validation of material parameters for specific polyurethane foam by experiment. The material properties (for seat made from Elastoflex W 5662 covered with Holdsworth BHLH 31634) will be useful for further simulations.
Key words: Crash / foam / PUR / dynamics / Elastoflex / Holdsworth
