Transverse and longitudinal crushing of aluminum-foam filled tubes
Al-foam filled and empty tubes of aluminum, brass and titanium were compression tested laterally. The specific energy absorption in filled tubes increased greatly in terms of percentages, and was greatest in aluminum tubes. ...
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 ...
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 ...
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, ...
Microhardness and fracture toughness of dental materials by indentation method
(Wiley Periodicals, Inc., 2005-10)
The main objective of this study was to measure the fracture toughness of the human teeth enamel using the microindentation technique and to compare the results calculated from the equations developed for Palmqvist and ...
