Foams are currently used for making lightweight structural components, energy absorbers, thermal insulators and for buoyancy. The main use is in energy absorption. Efficient use of the foams for mechanical propose requires an understanding of the mechanics of foams. This study was done to investigate the reasons for the large difference between the predict values and true value.
