Summary Hollow sphere cellular aluminium (HSCA) samples were fabricated by bonding together two kinds of single aluminium hollow spheres with the same outside diameter of 4 mm but different wall thicknesses of 0.1 mm and 0.3 mm, in which the hollow spheres with the thinner sphere wall thickness were used as artificial defects. Four types of HSCA samples with the same relative density but various distributions of artificial defects were prepared by simple cubic packing. For comparing, HSCA sample without defective hollow spheres inside was also prepared. The effects of the distribution of the artificial defects on the deformation behaviours and mechanical properties were investigated by compressive tests. Results indicated that the nominal stress - nominal strain curve and the deformation behavior of the HSCA samples varied with the distribution of the artificial defects in spite of the same relative density. It is therefore suggested that the deformation behavior and mechanical property of cellular materials were also significantly affected by the distribution of defects. In particular, the plateau stress of the HSCA samples increased with the decrease in number of contact points between the normal hollow spheres and the defective hollow spheres in the loading direction during deformation.
