Abstract

The mechanical properties of lotus metals were experimentally investigated and the effect of the anisotropic pores on the mechanical properties was clarified. The mechanical strength in the direction parallel to the pore direction linearly decreases with increasing porosity, while that perpendicular to the pore direction drastically decreases. This is caused by the anisotropy of stress concentration. The porosity dependence of the mechanical strength obeys a power-law formula.
