Maximizing reader insights into the principles of designing furniture as wooden structures, this book discusses issues related to the history of furniture structures, their classification and characteristics, ergonomic approaches to anthropometric requirements and safety of use. It presents key methods and highlights common errors in designing the characteristics of the materials, components, joints and structures, as well as looking at the challenges regarding developing associated design documentation. Including analysis of how designers may go about calculating the stiffness and endurance of parts, joints and whole structures, the book analyzes questions regarding the loss of furniture stability and the resulting threats to health of the user, putting forward a concept of furniture design as an engineering processes. Creating an attractive, functional, ergonomic and safe piece of furniture is not only the fruit of the work of individual architects and artists, but requires an effort of many people working in interdisciplinary teams, this book is designed to add important knowledge to the literature for engineer approaches in furniture design.The first step to solve this problem can be the analysis of the human-seat system (Smardzewski et al. ... proportions between the basic sections of the body, and ac relating to the musculo-nervous system and musculoskeletal system. ... not only in the system of the beam, but also in the system of external forces, where the concept of concentrated loads has been applied. ... 8.50 Distribution map of surface stresses On the basis 634 8 Stiffness and Strength Analysis of Upholstered Furniture.
