Paper Title:
Energy Absorption Capability of Zn-22Al Superplastic Alloy Foam Manufactured through Melt Foaming Process
  Abstract

Superplastic Zn-22Al alloy foams were manufactured through the melt foaming process using titanium hydride powder as a foaming agent. The compressive properties of the Zn-22Al foams were investigated under quasi-static and dynamic loading conditions. Experimental results show that the flow stress and the energy absorption of the Zn-22Al foam significantly increased with increasing the strain rate. At high strain rate region, the energy absorption of the Zn-22Al foams is also larger than that of conventional aluminum foams. These behaviors are due to superplastic deformation of cell walls.
