  • Content Description: The compressive deformation behavior of a closed-cell Aluminum foam (ALPORAS) manufactured by Shinko Wire. Co. in Japan was evaluated under static and dynamic loading conditions as a function of temperature. High strain rate tests (1000 - 2000/s) were conducted using a split-Hopkinson pressure bar(SHPB). Quasi-static and intermediate strain rate tests were conducted on a hydraulic load frame. Little change in the flow stress behavior as a function of strain rate was measured. The deformation behavior of the Al-foam was however found to be strongly temperature dependent under both quasistatic and dynamic loading. Localized deformation and stress state instability during testing of metal foams will be discussed in detail since the behavior over the entire range of strain rates indicates nonuniform deformation.
