Mechanical Testing of Diffusion Bonded Metallic Hollow Sphere Structure (MHSS)
The paper investigates the mechanical properties of sintered hollow sphere struc- tures. First of all, the Young's modulus, plastic modulus, initial flow stress, initial flow strain, plateau stress and densifcation strain are derived from compressive tests. In addition, the material behaviour during the compressive testing is described. Furthermore, the influence of different specimen shapes on the results is discussed.
