Cross-section of an aluminium foam slab produced by gas injection

By University of Cambridge DoITPoMS and University of Cambridge Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy Dr V Gergely


This is a continuous casting process which obviates foaming agents and the restrictions that they impose on temperature and processing time. However, molten metal drains through the structure due to gravitational forces and the resulting foam has a pronounced density gradient.
