Finite element (FE) analysis has shown promise for the evaluation of elastomeric foam personal protection devices. Although appropriate representation of foam materials is necessary in order to obtain realistic simulation results, material definitions used in the literature vary widely and often fail to account for the multi-mode loading experienced by these devices. This project accompanies the publication - Petre, M., Erdemir, A. and Cavanagh, P. R. (2006) Determination of elastomeric foam parameters for simulations of complex loading, Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering, 9, 231-242; in order to provide data and relevant material in regards to a library of elastomeric foam material parameters that can be used in FE simulations of complex loading scenarios.
