Micro-Foam Model

The micromechanical foam model (MFM) is an advanced model for predicting the time-dependent, non-linear large-strain behavior of polymer foams. The MF-model is unique in that it not only considers the viscoelastic response of the material but also explicitly takes into account the density of the foam and the initial pore pressure inside the foam. The model has been been shown to be accurate for both low density and high density foams.
