Investigating the strain rate-dependent compressive properties of fiber-reinforced soy-based polyurethane foams

N. Obaid, M. Kortschot & M. Sain
Although conventional polyurethane foams are used in several applications; they are produced from non-renewable constituents. An alternative polyurethane foam can be produced by replacing petroleum-based polyol with one that is derived from soybean oil. Polyurethane foams are often used as the core material for sandwich panels in structural applications and as energy absorption materials in car bumpers and other applications. In order to maintain structural integrity, these foams must display acceptable properties over a wide...
