Paper Title:
A Theoretical and Experimental Study on the Dynamic Constitutive Model of Aluminum Foams
  Abstract

The phenomenological constitutive framework for compressible elasto-plastic solids presented by Chen and Lu [1] is extended to the dynamic cases by assuming that the material parameter curves in the stress potential depend also on the strain rate. To check the applicability of the extended model, three types of dynamic experiments, i.e., uniaxial compression, lateral-constrained compression and side-constrained compression tests, are conducted for an open-cell aluminum foam at different strain rates. The first two types of dynamic tests are used as characteristic tests to determine the material parameter curves at different strain rates which are then used to construct the stress potential function in the model. The results show that the stress-strain curves under side-constrained compression predicted by the model are in agreement with those obtained experimentally.
