Crushing of aluminum closed cell foams: Density and strain rate effects
The quasi-static and high strain rate compression behavior of an Al closed cell foam was examined in detail. The compression flow stress of the foam was a function of the relative density but exhibits little or no strain ...
Dynamics of metal foam deformation during Taylor cylinder–Hopkinson bar impact experiment
Analytical solutions for dynamic deformation of foam materials during the Taylor cylinder–Hopkinson bar impact experiment were obtained. It was shown that shock wave of foam collapse appears during the fast impact. The ...
Effect of adhesive on the strengthening of aluminum foam-filled circular tubes
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2004)
Studies of the crushing behavior of closed-cell, aluminum foam-filled aluminum and steel tubes have shown an interaction effect between tubewall and foam filler [1, 2, 3]. The crushing loads of foam-filled tubes are, ...
