Paper Title:
Effect of Foaming Temperature on Pore Morphology of Al/AlN Composite Foam Fabricated by Melt Foaming Method
  Abstract

Al foams whose matrix contains dispersed AlN particles (Al/AlN composite foams) were prepared by a melt foaming method, and the effect of foaming temperature on the pore morphology of the prepared foams was investigated. First, Al/AlN composites were prepared by non-compressive infiltration of Al powder compacts with molten Al alloy in nitrogen atmosphere. Next, the prepared composites were melted by induction heating and foamed at various temperatures using TiH2 powders as blowing agents. The porosity of prepared Al/AlN composite foams slightly decreases with increasing foaming temperature, and the pore morphology of the foam becomes homogeneous simultaneously. When the foaming temperature is 1123 K, homogeneous pores are formed in all over the ingot. This pore homogeneity is probably achieved by the stabilization of the foaming behavior due to the formation of Al3Ti particles in the melt and dispersion of AlN particles.
