Impact toughness of closed cell aluminum foam

Sourav Das

Volume 3, Issue 7 , 2018, Pages 443-446

http://dx.doi.org/10.5185/amp.2018/1432

Abstract
  The impact toughness of closed-cell aluminum foam with various densities was investigated using Charpy impact. The impact load history revealed an elastic region followed by a rapid load drop region. The peak load and impact toughness of aluminum foam increase exponentially with density. The power exponents ...  Read More

Nanoscale dispersion of palygorskite bundles by a facile mechanical/chemical approach

Wenbo Wang; Fangfang Wang; Yuru Kang; Li Zong; Qin Wang; Aiqin Wang

Volume 3, Issue 7 , 2018, Pages 447-453

http://dx.doi.org/10.5185/amp.2018/6999

Abstract
  In this paper, we developed a simple mechanical/chemical process to efficiently disperse palygorskite (PAL) crystal bundles into individual nanorods. The “cavity effect” of high-pressure homogenization process generated many “Miniature bombs” in the interior gap of crystal bundles, ...  Read More
