Potential applications of foam-filled section are the automotive structures. A foam-filled section can be used for the front rail and firewall structures to absorb impact energy during frontal or side collision. In the case of side collision where bending is involved in the crushing mechanics, the foam filler will be significant in maintaining progressive crushing of the thin-walled structures so that more impact energy can be absorbed. In this study, the manufacturing process of closed cell aluminum alloy foam filled stainless steel tube was studied, and the various foam filled specimens including piecewise fillers were prepared, tested and discussed about the bending behaviors.
