Application and Analysis of the New Functional Materials of Foam Aluminum
Shan Dong University of Science and Technology, Qingdao, 266590, China
As a typical metal foams materials, aluminum foam which is a new type of functional materials has excellent properties of sound absorption and damping. In view of its complex internal micro-structure, on the basis of microcosmic cell theory, the paper set a BCC model of sound absorption of aluminum foam that can control its structure and size parameters such as porosity and aperture in micro-structural. The paper gets parameter factors of aluminum foam structure and size and studies its effect to sound absorption of aluminum foam though micro-modeling and proceeds experiment verification. Its turn out that this BCC model can apply to the research of aluminum foam sound absorption, and it can control the sound absorption of aluminum foam through controlling the microcosmic size of aluminum foam cell.
