In this study, a new type of wire-woven cellular metal named WBD(wire-woven bulk diamond) was developed. Like WBK(wire-woven bulk Kagome), WBD is composed of helically formed wires; WBK was introduced a few years ago, and its mechanical, thermal properties, and engineering applications have been extensively investigated. The number of wires that pass by one another at each cross point in WBD is four, whereas that in WBK is three. The mechanical behavior of WBD subjected to compression was investigated and the results were compared to those for WBK. For a given slenderness ratio the density and yield strength of WBD were about twice as high as those for WBK, but elastic stiffness of WBD was not that higher than that for WBK.
