Abstract: Abstract Polyurethane foam formation involves both polymerization and expansion processes. The dynamics of the water and R‐11 blown foams depend on the rates of chemical and physical blowing processes, along with the rate of viscosity increase of the reacting mixture. Experiments were carried out to study the dynamics of free rising, water and R‐11 blown rigid polyurethane foams. The density and temperature change during the foam formation were monitored. A theoretical model was developed to predict the densi…
