Abstract
The compression characteristics of open-cell aluminum foams were experimentally and numerically investigated. It is found that the mechanical parameters, such as collapse stress and absorbed energy, are dependent on the porosity of aluminum foams material. During simulation of metal foam compression, the finite elements distort severely at the local regions with high gradient of physical field. The procedure integrates Explicit solver of Abaqus FEA, 3D Optiformmesher and Python script program transfer to execute step by step the incremental deformation of deformable body.
