The dynamic compressive response of closed-cell (CYMAT™) stabilised aluminium alloy foams (SAF) has been investigated using a modified Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar (SHPB) in conjunction with a high-speed camera. Tests have been carried out on 45 mm diameter and 23 mm thick cylindrical specimens. The elastic-plastic pore collapse mechanism has been investigated using Digital Image Correlation (DIC) and micro-computed X-ray tomography. A stress-strain relationship for individual specimens at...[Show more]
