Aluminium Foam

Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) Analysis of Aluminium Foam

X-ray computed tomography (CT) has been successfully exploited in different fields as a non-destructive testing (NDT) technique to qualitatively and quantitatively inspect components. Intricate structures, such as cellular solids, require a three-dimensional characterisation, therefore X-ray CT can provide insights of the behaviour for this class of materials. TWI conducted a series of experiments to assess the behaviour of aluminium foam under mechanical and thermal load.
