Imaging of metallic foams using X-ray micro-CT

Saadatfar, Mohammad; Garcia-Moreno, F; Hutzler, S; Sheppard, Adrian; Knackstedt, Mark; Banhar, J; Weaire, Denis Lawrence


Physical properties of metallic foams are a direct consequence of their micro-/macro-structure. To improve these materials, it is necessary to understand exactly how the microstructure determines these properties. In this study we consider a range of metallic foams that have been prepared under various conditions. The metal foams are made of Al alloys and Zn and were produced by adding different amount of blowing agents. Additionally, external gas pressure was applied during foaming process....[Show more]
