Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

Despite the aesthetic and functional importance of foam cosmeses, the foam mechanical behaviour has not been quantified in the literature. This paper reports the results of testing two commonly used foams to determine their material properties. The works aims to enable the FEA modelling of cosmeses.
