Effect of Cell Size on the Dynamic Compressive Properties of Aluminum Alloy Foams

Abstract:

Article Preview

The static and dynamic compressive behaviors of open-cell aluminum alloy foams with virtually the same relative density of 0.4 were investigated. The foams have different cell sizes (0.5mm, 1.5mm, 2.5mm) but similar cell morphology and microstructure. The yield strength of these foams was characterized as a function of strain rate and cell morphology. The experimental results indicated that the mechanical responses of foams are sensitive to strain rate, and dependent of the cell size. The present results are compared in details with recent findings obtained from the aluminum foams.
