Abstract: Full understanding of response of highly porous (cellular) ceramic foams to different mechanical loading conditions is important because of their potential use in industry, medical and other applications. Technique of tensile test of ceramic foam materials has been developed and first knowledge is described in the paper. Tested material was based on alumina ceramic; it was manufactured by slurry coating of polyurethane foam. Two cell sizes were included into the study 10 and 60 PPI. Testing procedure consists …
