Characterization of steel tube reinforced aluminum metallic composite foam
by Arowolo, Michael, M.Eng., Southern University and Agricultural and Mechanical College, 2015, 78; 10001397
Abstract (Summary)

Metal composite construction has been extensively used in various fields. However, metal composite panels have not been fully exploited in critical structural applications due to impact damage tolerance and safety concerns. In order to improve the impact resistance and energy absorption of metal composite panel under impact loadings, a novel steel tube reinforced aluminum metallic composite foam panel is proposed which is a hybrid core made up of a hollow metallic tubes reinforced aluminum matrix. Four tests have been conducted, including, radial compression test, 3 point bending test, quasi-static low velocity impact test and imaging of fiber matrix interface.
