Numerical modelling of closed-cell aluminium foams under shock loading

Kader, M. A.; Islam, M. A.; Hazell, Philip; Escobedo, J P; Saadatfar, Mohammad; Brown, A.D.


The present research numerically investigates shock propagation through closed-cell aluminium foam via flyer-plate impact. The mechanics of foam deformation was elucidated using the finite element (FE) software ABAQUS/explicit. X-ray computed micro-tomography was performed to render a full 3D foam geometry mesh for understanding detailed macrostructural response due to shock propagation. Elastic wave propagation and pore collapse mechanism with time were studied. The free surface velocity of...[Show more]
