    We have completed multi-axial testing of metallic foam samples. The objective was to investigate failure limits under tension, torsion, tension combined with torsion and compression combined with torsion. Although we usually test materials only in tension or compression, and sometimes in shear, they could experience complex loads as part of real structures such as a bridge or a car. Our […]
