A â€œmetal foamâ€ that has a similar elasticity to bone could mean a new generation of biomedical implants that would avoid bone rejection that often results from more rigid implant materials, such as titanium.
"Smart" alloy stretches, contracts by almost 10 percent.
Researchers from Northwestern University and Boise State University have figured out how to produce a less expensive shape-shifting "memory" foam, which could lead to more widespread applications of the material, such as in surgical positioning tools and valve mechanisms.
Aluminum foams have a porous structure that makes them excellent materials to absorb sound, impacts and vibrations. Their metallic nature allows their use as electromagnetic shields and makes them stable at high temperatures.
A special process will make it possible to improve the mechanical, thermal and acoustic properties of foams in the future. This will be of particular benefit to lightweight construction.
By Nakajima, Hideo Ide, Takuya Lotus-type porous copper with aligned long cylindrical pores was fabricated by unidirectional solidification in an argon atmosphere.
