Paper No: MANU-22-1091
Published Online: May 19, 2022
...Tom Zhang; Y. Lawrence Yao Metal foam is an excellent lightweight material with promising industrial applications. Laser forming has been studied and shown to be a viable non-contact method to shape metal foam panels into desired geometry without fracturing the foam’s cellular structure. However...

... analyzed. This study was focused on laser forming of metal foam sandwich panels into non-Euclidean (3D) geometries. It was investigated whether the bending mechanisms and process parameters identified for 2D laser forming translate to 3D deformation. Additionally, the impact of the laser scan length...
