Using the Surface Evolver software, we perform numerical simulations of point-like deformations in a two-dimensional foam. We study perturbations which are infinitesimal or finite, isotropic or anisotropic, and we either conserve or do not conserve the number of bubbles. We measure the displacement fields around the perturbation. Changes in pressure decrease exponentially with the distance to perturbation, indicating a screening over a few bubble diameters.
