Abstract

Based on suggestions given in [1], the uni-axial compressive stress-strain relations for elastomeric foams, which were developed in [2], have been extended to cover the bi- and tri-axial stress modes of compression for both open- and closed-cell elastomeric foams. The stress-strain relations for uni- and tri-axial stress compression modes were validated by comparing numerical predictions, which were based on them, to experimental results.
