Fabrication of Magnesium Foam by Precursor Method Using Machined Chips
The present study is aiming at investigating the possibility of producing a magnesium foam from machined chips. To produce highly porous magnesium foam, precursor producing process was investigated by hot extrusion and compressive torsion processing (CTP). The CTP could realize well-consolidated precursors and homogeneous distribution of a blowing agent. The precursor made of machined chips satisfactorily expanded, and the porosity were comparatively high by optimizing processing parameters of the CTP.
