Abstract: The compressive-stress strain response of polyurethane foam under uniaxial compressive impact loading has been studied. The development of a uniaxial constitutive model from strain rate controlled compression tests is detailed. Density and temperature functions have been added to the integral power model proposed by Schwaber, Meincke, and Nagy. The model assumes that the effects of density, temperature, strain, and strain rate on stress are separable functions. The model correlated well with actual static com…
