Compressive properties of three commercially available rigid polyvinyl chloride (PVC) foams intended for use as possible model material for human cancellous bone were investigated. Quasi-static compression tests were performed on PVC foam blocks of different densities (0.10, 0.13 and 0.20 g/cm 3 ) with a crosshead speed of 0.15 mm/sec to determine the compressive Young's modulus, the yield strength and the energy absorbed until yield. The results were compared with data obtained on humandoi:10.12700/aph.12.2.2015.2.6 fatcat:mlvcvl3gyvbu3pwgxa55nnmye4
