报告题目:Crushing and Energy Absorption of Open-Cell Foams

        Abstract:Lightweight cellular materials such as foams exhibit excellent energy absorption characteristics and are widely used for impact mitigation in a variety of applications. The crushing behavior of an Al-alloy open-cell foam under quasi-static and dynamic loadings is studied through a combination of experiment and analysis. X-ray tomography is used to establish the irregular polyhedral cell microstructure. Quasi-static crushing is performed under displacement control and the evolution of deformation in the specimen is monitored using X-ray tomography. The response exhibits a relatively stiff linearly elastic regime that terminates into a load maximum, followed by an extended load plateau during which localized cell crushing initiates and gradually propagates throughout the specimen. This general behavior is repeated when the foam is impacted at lower speeds, whereas for higher impact speeds the specimen is crushed by planar shocks with increasingly higher stress and deformation behind the shock. The shock-impact speed Hugoniot now becomes the underlying constitutive behavior of the foam.

        The experiments are simulated using micromechanically accurate foam models developed using the Surface Evolver software. The linear sides of the skeletal microstructure are “dressed” with appropriate distributions of solid, modeled as shear-deformable elastic-plastic beams in LS-DYNA. Such models are shown to reproduce quasi-static crushing faithfully from the initial elastic behavior, to the localization and propagation of crushing responsible for the extended stress-plateau. Modeling of dynamic crushing confirms limited inertial effects below a critical speed and shock formation above it. In the shock regime the models reproduce the stress enhancement behind the shock, the shock front velocity, and the energy absorbed. The implications of the results on the design of energy absorbing structures that incorporate foams will be discussed.
