The Effects of Internal and External Factors on the Mechanical Behavior of the Foam Copper

Abstract : The study on the mechanical properties of foam copper has become increasingly important, for the potential market in the foam metal. The Kelvin model was supposed to be the suitable model to construct the ideal open-cell, continued and three-dimensional structure. The static tensile behavior on the foam copper was simulated by ANSYS and the effects of the porosity and strain rate on the foam copper were analyzed. The results show that there is a great influence of the porosity on the elastic modulus— the higher the porosity is, the smaller the elastic modulus, and though the larger the strain rate is, the smaller the elastic modulus, the effect on it is very small. The Kelvin model exhibit a characters of anisotropy, and the displacement and the stress of the node is different form its’ location.
