The following investigations are described:
- determinatíon of the mechanical properties of metallic foams under various types of loading;
- determination of fundamental characteristics for the processing of metallic foam composite structures
- modelling of components made from metallic foam or using it
The materials considered are Al99.5, AlSi12 and AlMgSi, with foam densities of 0.4, 0.75 and 1.0 g/cm3. The covering sheets of sandwich composites were either steel or an aluminium alloy.Foam-filled steel tubes were also considered.
