Abstract

Compressive behavior of a closed-cell aluminum has been investigated at high strain rates, utilizing AZ31 magnesium alloy bars as compared to maraging steel bars, to estimate the validity of the mechanical response of the foam. Apparent strain rate sensitivity of plateau stress has been observed and strain hardening occurred during compression at the dynamic strain rate. © 2005 Acta Materialia Inc.
