This work aims to model and to simulate the polyurethane foaming process. Models taking into account the two main chemical reactions of the formation of polyurethane, the exothermic effect of these reactions as well as the thermo-rheo-kinetic coupling characterizing this process are proposed and implemented in the software NOGRID-points based on a meshless method (Finite Pointset Method). A prediction of some acoustic foam characteristics is also proposed based on the results of the numerical simulation of the foaming process and semi-phenomenological models.
