Rigid Polymer Foam Modelling

    • Orçun Özgün

      I need to modelling PVC foam for sandwich structures. Is it enough to use generalize hooke laws.
      Should I check the Blatz-Ko, Neo-Hookean .etc ?

      Hi Orcun,

      For more accurate simulations, foam materials are considered to exhibit hyperelastic behavior (as opposed to linear elastic response).
      Please see if the two courses below are helpful for your application:
