In this paper, impulse-momentum theory was coupled to a constitutive equation both for implementing quasi-static and impact characteristics of EPP (Expanded polypropylene). Also, parameters which have physical meanings were expressed as functions of relative density. Simultaneous nonlinear Newton-Raphson method was applied to find the proper values for parameters in the constitutive equation along with quasi-static test data. Results from the impulse-momentum theory coupled constitutive equation showed good agreement with experimental data and the potential to be applied to different material type polymeric foam.
