Porous Materials / Metal foams


Porous, foam like materials show a complex internal structure. They consist of a skeleton interspersed by closed or open pores. The pores itself are saturated with fluid. For the application of these new materials to machinery components it is necessary to develop a model, which describes the deformation behavoir at the macroscale with condsiderisation of the pore fluid. Of particular interest is the coupled thermo-mechanical behavoir of the solid skeleton and the pore fluid. This research topic is treated from a theoretical and numerical point of view.
