THE IDENTIFICATION PROPERTIES OF POROUS FOAM

The aim of this work is to develop methods of describing the properties of such materials based on knowledge of: basic materials, technologies (gas pressure formed during foaming) using the theory of hyperplastic materials. The resulting description can be used for the applicability of hyperelastic models, and therefore in the whole range of deformation of the polymer-based composites and elastic composites of metals (not included plasticity). Thesis presents analysis methods of hyperelastic materials using Finite Elements Method. Using FEM it is possible to verify used material, define materials models and show effectiveness of designed component without performing expensive impact tests. Presented methods and applications of the characteristics of hyperelastic materials and composites with the gas phase are used to determine the proper selection of parameters (material properties), increasing the opportunities for a proper assessment of the effectiveness of safety devices.
