Abstract:This work deals with the formability of metal foams and it is focused on three point bending of aluminum foam sandwich panels. In this study bending can be considered as both a process for shaping of foamed panels and a mean for metal foam testing. Several tests were carried out by varying bending conditions and collecting load-displacement data. Specimens showed an interesting behaviour during bending since the sample deformation was related to the occurrence of foam cells failure or collapse. Moreover, once … Show more
