Material Models of Plastics and Foams for Crash Simulation

In the development of automobiles, numerical simulation has become an essential component. Many important design decisions are now made based on simulation results, particularly in the field of crash safety. There has been an increase in the use of foams in vehicles in recent years. These are much more complicated in terms of material characteristics than simple materials like steel or aluminium, which can be modelled fairly well, due to their variety and structure. The simulation expert faces a significant challenge in determining the properties of foam materials. Although different modelling approaches are now available in explicit FEM-programs such as LS-DYNA, PAM-CRASH, or RADIOSS, they are frequently insufficient.
