Compressive Properties of Open Cell Aluminum Foams

Abstract:

Article Preview

The uniaxial compressive test results of several aluminum foams are compared with aluminum alloy and ppi (pore per inch) of open cell foam. The compressive stress-strain curve of aluminum alloy foams exhibits universal three deformation regions: an initial linear elastic response, and then extended plateau region with a nearly constant flow stress, a final densification as collapsed cells are compacted together. The lower the foam densities are, the longer the plateau region is, but lower densities also imply lower yield stress.
