In this paper, methods of measuring the softness of open-cell polyurethane foams in terms of their Young's modulus using indentation methods are investigated and shown to be in agreement with values determined by normal compression tests. The comparison involved the use of a formula relating Young's modulus for elastomers to the axial indentation forces on a cylindrical probe. This had been developed for cartilage and verified for other biological tissues and could not automatically be assumed… CONTINUE READING
