Deformation and fracture of aluminium foams

aluminium alloy, A356 (7 wt.% Si and 0.3 wt.% Mg), stabilised by about 5–15 vol.% SiC particles (average size between 1 and 20 mm). The Alcan foams are notable for their large cell size, on the order of 5–15 mm; they are cast into plates of thickness 40–75 mm and possess a density gradient through the thickness [15].

Effects of Surface Area Density of Aluminum Foams on ...

Jun 14, 2007· The effects of the surface area density of open‐cell aluminum foams on the effective thermal conductivity of aluminum foam‐phase change material (PCM) composites were investigated. Paraffin was selected as the PCM. The experimental results show that the effective thermal conductivity increases as the temperature increases.

The emergence of chemical gradients in PU foams due to thermal gradients can also influence the morphology of the molded PU foam. Earlier studies have shown that increasing temperatures used during thermal processing decreases the density of the foam through thermal expansion and evolution of CO 2 during foaming process.
