Finite Element Analysis of Low-Density High-Hysteresis Foam Materials and the Application in the Automotive Industry 940908
A new foam material model has been developed incorporating both theoretical formulation for low-density high-hysteresis foam and test data. Detailed formulation is presented. The finite element analysis of the resilient bumper and the IP head impact are also discussed. A good correlation is concluded by comparing the results from the tests and the FEA simulations.
