This is a short article, nine pages, reporting on just about all the FC properties. They paid attention to the pore size of the polymer foam agent and the effect on the MPa. Although the call it a structural FC the maximum density tested is 640 Kg m3 and reached 47Kg/cm2. If I am correct that is 4.7 MPa. Good graphs of the results. One of the few articles that reported on impact behavior, adding EPS in the mix and fibers of vynylon of 19 and 30 mm long. The longest fiber gave a better tensile and flexural strength. I have not seen articles using fibers this long. This is also one of the must read papers if you want to study FC. Could be very helpful in the direction you may want to take.
