Mechanical properties of open-cellular magnesium alloys with three types of geometric cell-structures, that is, a random round cell-structure (type A). a controlled diamond cell-structure for which the angle between the struts and the load direction is 45 degree (type B) and a controlled square cell-structure for which the angle between the struts and the loading direction is 0 degree (90 degree) (type C), are investigated by compressive tests. Results indicate that type C showed a higher collapse stress than the other two types. The collapse mechanism and the effects of the loading direction on collapse stress for the three types of magnesium alloys arc discussed from the viewpoint of bending, buckling and yielding of the struts. It is suggested that collapse for the open-cellular magnesium aHoys is associated with yielding of struts
