SummaryWe calculate the stress-strain relation for elastomeric foam from anab initio theory, which shows that the “plateau” and “densification” regions should be described by a hyperbola. The theory seems to agree reasonably well with experiment. 
A Robust , Compressible , Hyperelastic Constitutive Model for the Mechanical Response of Foamed Rubber
An overview of the roles that cellular elastomers play in engineered systems and the phenomenology of these materials is presented. Available data on these materials and empirical modeling approaches
Three‐dimensional imaging of large compressive deformations in elastomeric foams
Specimens of silica-reinforced polysiloxane foam pads were three-dimensionally imaged during axial compressive loading to densification. The foams' behavior was highly nonlinear and showed the three
Finite Deformation of Materials with an Ensemble of Defects
The theory of large deformations developed here is closely related to continuum mechanics but it differs in several major respects, especially in considering the deformation associated with various


Elastic Solids with Microdefects
For a “representative volume element” (RVE) consisting of an elastic (linear or nonlinear) matrix and microdefects, relations between the overall stress and strain potentials and the corresponding
