Processing and properties of metal open-cell foams with periodic topology
Metal open-cell foams are competitively poised to meet the demands of next generation applications due to the ability to tailor their properties to achieve multifunctionality through material selection and control of the pore structure. The topological design of metal foams must consider many factors including pore size, shape, spatial distribution, and interconnectivity; however, the current manufacturing techniques limit the degree to which the tailored pore structures can be realized. In the current research, a novel manufacturing approach to tailoring the pore structure of metal open-cell ...
