Effect of Porosity on Fatigue Strength of Lotus-Type Porous Copper
Tension and compression fatigue property was investigated for lotus-type porous copper possessing cylindrical pores aligned in one direction. The cyclic stress was applied in the direction parallel and perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the pores. It was found that the fatigue strength at finite life of lotus-type porous copper is lower than that of nonporous copper, and the strength in the direction parallel to the longitudinal axis of the pores is higher than that in the perpendicular direction.
