Polymeric foams are often used in passive safety applications both for commercial products (e.g. packaging of electronic materials) as well as for people (e.g. helmets). To improve the performance of safety systems, their numerical modelling under the conditions of use is of prime importance. This numerical approach requires the identification of the foam behaviour during an impact. The mechanical behaviour of polymeric foams depends on several parameters such as density and microstructure. The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of the microstructure on the foam behaviour.
