The behavior of aluminum Cymat foam under impact perforation loading was studied using experiments and simulations. Measurements at 40 m/s were performed with an inverse perforation setup using a Split Hopkinson Pressure Bars system. Such measurement is missing in a classical free-flying penetrator–immobile–target scheme under impact loading and makes it possible to directly compare impact the perforation force–displacement curves with the static ones. Compared with quasi-static test perforation forces obtained under the same geometry and clamping system, a significantly enhanced perforation force was found under impact loading. Numerical simulations of the perforation test were developed using LS-DYNAfinite element code to provide the local information necessary to understand the unexpected enhancement in perforation force. The shock effect was found to be responsible for enhancement of the perforation force and revealed that the honeycomb model with appropriate tensile failure criteria was more suitable for model perforation of the foam than the Deshpande and Fleck model with volumetric failure strain criteria
