Abstract: The role of cell wall microstructure in influencing the mechanical behaviour of closed cell aluminium foam was investigated. An attempt was made to describe the relationship between microstructure of cell wall and mechanical properties pertaining to the compressive response. The closed-cell foams in as-foamed and aged condition, having rather similar relative densities and cell structures but significantly different cell-wall microstructure. The thick dendritic structure of the asfoamed samples break into finer precipitates resulting in improvement in microhardness of the cell wall during the initial stages of ageing. As ageing progresses, coarsening of the precipitates occurs with degradation of the mechanical properties. The compression tests carried out in the peak aged samples are better than the as-foamed sample confirming that ageing improves the energy absorption capability of closed cell aluminium foam. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
