Enhanced Mechanical Performance of Aluminum Glass Fiber Reinforced Foam Material by Cu Modification

Title variants
Languages of publication
Glass fiber-reinforced aluminum foam and its modified forms, using 1 and 3 wt.% of Cu, were produced by powder sintering process, using spherical carbamide particles as space holders. The foams with 40 and 60 vol.% porosity fractions were successfully produced after water leaching and sintering procedures. Compression test was performed on foam samples to compare both, the compressive properties and energy absorption behavior of them. The composite foam samples with Cu modification have shown a higher compressive strength than the parent material foam. The average plateau stress and energy absorption capacity of foams produced in this study, achieved via utilizing 3 wt.% Cu, were 7.06 MPa and 3.51 MJ/m³, respectively.
