Recent research findings on the mechanical behavior of metal foams are summarized in this work. Thanks to their properties in compressive tests, a wide range of foamed materials has been considered for energy-absorption applications such as Al, Fe, Ti, Ni and its alloys. The main parameters affecting energy absorption are focused and presented: cell size, relative density, strain rate, hybrid foam (Al-Cu, Al-Ni), base metal, and composites structures (Al-foam filled tube and sandwich). Metal foam response, impact resistance and failure are discussed in many configurations and test conditions. The results of finite elements modelling and its validation by means of mechanical tests are discussed too.

Abstract

Recent research findings on the mechanical behavior of metal foams are summarized in this work. Thanks to their properties in compressive tests, a wide range of foamed materials has been considered for energy-absorption applications such as Al, Fe, Ti, Ni and its alloys. The main parameters affecting energy absorption are focused and presented: cell size, relative density, strain rate, hybrid foam (Al-Cu, Al-Ni), base metal, and composites structures (Al-foam filled tube and sandwich). Metal foam response, impact resistance and failure are discussed in many configurations and test conditions. The results of finite elements modelling and its validation by means of mechanical tests are discussed too.
