Abstract

A1050 porous aluminum is fabricated by the FSP route and the effect of the tool rotating rate on the porosity and morphology of the pores is investigated. To fabricate high-porosity porous aluminum with a uniform pore size distribution, a certain amount of stirring action is necessary; however, excessive stirring action is ineffective. A sufficiently uniform mixture is realized by traversing the FSP tool two times at a tool rotating rate exceeding 2200 rpm. The results indicate the minimum necessary amount of stirring action and will provide a guideline for improving productivity. Also, to improve the morphology of pores, optimizing the amount of Al2O3 is effective. Closed-cell porous aluminum with a porosity of about 80% was successfully fabricated by 2-pass FSP at 2200 rpm with the addition of 7 mass% Al2O3, a holding temperature of 998 K and a holding time of 10 min.
