The aluminium alloy foam is a new class of material with low density, large specific surface, better corrosion resistance and wear and low thermal expansion. Their application is light weight structural components, shock or sound absorbing products, aero planes and ships. As a foam agent are calcium carbonate, Magnesium carbonate and Dolomite powder add process, the composite aluminium foam sandwich structure is fabricated by bottom pouring stir casting furnace through melting route. Further the specimen is examining the experimental test and calculates the readings. Finally compare the three type aluminium foam sandwich structure results from aluminium alloy structure. The results shown the energy absorption capability of the composite structures is much greater than the sum of the energy absorbed by the two components, the foam and the tube. © Research India Publications.
