Summary In this study, the mechanical properties of a closed-cell aluminium foam have been investigated by compressive tests. The deformation behaviors of the aluminium foams were studied using X-ray microtomography (XMT). Aluminium foam samples with various cell size distributions and cell
morphologies were intentionally selected to investigate the effect of the cell characteristics on the deformation behaviors. Results indicated that the deformation of the aluminium foams under compressive loading was localized in narrow continuous deformation bands having widths of order of a cell diameter. The cells in the deformation bands collapsed by a mixed deformation mechanism, which includes mainly bending, and also minor buckling and yielding as well. Different fractions of the three deformation modes led to variations in the peak stress and energy absorption for different foam samples with the same density. It was also found that the cell morphology affected the deformation mechanism significantly, whilst the cell size showed little influence. Those cells with defects such as corrugations, curvatures and non-uniformities in the wall thickness were the initiators of the deformation bands of the aluminium foam.
