Structural details

Porous aluminium is effectively used in the fields, where the combination of mechanical resistance and light weight of product are needed. The specific weight of material is 1.0-1.35 g/cm3 and depends on the porosity size. The additional strengthening of the PCA products is possible by placing a reinforcing bar inside the structure. A large-scale study of porous aluminium mechanical properties depending on the bulk porosity size and inside pore diameter: detection of elastic resistance, flow limit, rapture strength, compression strength and shock strength is planned in 2013.
