Metal foam density

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Is it possible to calculate voids density in Al foam using hyper works. Actually I have the model but. I do not know how to calculate viod/material fraction.

@Pranav Hari Hi,

I have the model of Al7075 foam I just need to measure the fraction of void and material, defining a density for the entire volume (it will be obviously lower than the bulk material one, due to the presence of voids). You can find the file in the attachment.

Hi Farper

 

if you just want to know the density difference between two conditions here is a suggestion:

 

You can create the model without voids and give the material properties of Al7075 (E, u and Rho)  and find out the mass value from Tools > mass calc

Then you can create the model with voids and give all similar material properties. you can now see the masses will be different. So comparing both these mass values you can arrive at the new density of your model with voids.
