Overview

Cellular solids include engineering honeycombs and foams (which can now be made from polymers, metals, ceramics, and composites) as well as natural materials, such as wood, cork, and cancellous bone. This new edition of a classic work details current understanding of the structure and mechanical behavior of cellular materials, and the ways in which they can be exploited in engineering design. Gibson and Ashby have brought the book completely up to date, including new work on processing of metallic and ceramic foams and on the mechanical, electrical and acoustic properties of cellular solids. Data for commercially available foams are presented on material property charts; two new case studies show how the charts are used for selection of foams in engineering design. Over 150 references appearing in the literature since the publication of the first edition are cited. It will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in materials science and engineering.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A broad survey of foamed and porous solids and the ways in which they can be exploited in engineering design. By unifying the modelling of many different types of cellular solid, similarities in behavior in these diverse materials are explained. Case studies provide worked examples of foam behavior and selection for engineering applications. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
