SiC-particulate aluminum composite foams produced by powder compacts: Foaming and compression behavior
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2003)
The foaming behavior of SiC-particulate (8.6% by volume) aluminum composite powder compacts contained Titanium Hydride blowing agent was investigated by heating above the melting temperature (750°C) in a pre-heated furnace. ...
Effect of aluminum closed-cell foam filling on the quasi-static axial crush performance of glass fiber reinforced polyester composite and aluminum/composite hybrid tubes
The effect of Al closed-cell foam filling on the quasi-static crushing behavior of an E-glass woven fabric polyester composite tube and thin-walled Al/polyester composite hybrid tube was experimentally investigated. For ...
Finite element and coupled finite element/smooth particle hydrodynamics modeling of the quasi-static crushing of empty and foam-filled single, bitubular and constraint hexagonal- and square-packed aluminum tubes
The quasi-static axial crushing behavior of empty and Al and polystyrene foam-filled Al single, bitubular and multi-tube-packed (hexagonal and square packing) configurations were investigated experimentally and numerically. ...
Foaming behavior of Ti6Al4V particle-added aluminum powder compacts
The foaming behavior of 5 wt.% Ti6Al4V (Ti64) particle (30–200 μm)-added Al powder compacts was investigated in order to assess the particle-addition effects on the foaming behavior. Al compacts without particle addition ...
Improving the energy absorption of closed cell aluminum foams
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2002)
Closed cell aluminum foams have received much recent attention as energy absorbing materials on account of their ability to undergo extensive deformation at a relatively low stress called the plateau stress. Several studies ...
SiC-particulate aluminum composite foams produced from powder compacts: foaming and compression behavior
The foaming behavior of SiC-particulate (SiCp) aluminum composite powder compacts containing titanium hydride blowing agent was investigated by heating to 750°C in a pre-heated furnace. Aluminum powder compacts were also ...
