Modelling of rigid polymeric foams

      Hello,

      I am trying to model the rigid polymeric foams. Considering the mechanical properties of rigid foam, which material model would make more sense to use? Mooney-Rivlin, Ogden, Blatz-Ko, Hyperfoam etc.

      Hello Musa,

      If the material is known to be incompressible by nature, it is preferred to use Moonley-Rivlin, Yeoh, Ogden etc.

      If the material is known to be compressible, it is preferred to use Ogden-foam, Blatz-ko etc.

      You can also advise this course Energy Functional | Ansys Innovation Courses.

      Thank you,
