Abstract

The aim of this work is the development of microstructural numerical models of metallic foams. In particular, attention is focused on closed cell foam made of aluminium alloy. By means of a finite elements code, the material cellular structure was shaped in different ways: firstly the Kelvin cell, with both plane and curved walls; finally an ellipsoidal cell defined by random dimensions, position and orientation has been adopted as base unit. In order to validate the foam numerical models, static tests were performed to obtain the typical stress–strain curves and then compared with the numerical analysis results.
