Abstract

Metallic foams are very perspective candidates for light-weight applications in automotive, aerospace, naval and construction industry. However their mechanical properties are very sensitive, different density regions and structural anisotropy can significantly affect the resulting mechanical properties of products. In this study the compressive properties of samples excised out from different parts of relatively large block of Al foam ALPORAS have been measured. The effect of structural parameters, density and strain rate sensitivity were discussed.

Keywords: Aluminum foam, density, compression, strain rate
