Abstract:

A carbon foam round robin test and evaluation study was performed whereby several foam manufacturers provided material to be tested. Test methods used included compression block and dogbone, shear plate and torsional, tension, thermal conductivity, crushing with constrained piston, and compression modulus. Test specimen preparation procedures were discussed. Relevant definitions and equations related to test parameters were provided. This report allows one skilled in the art to independently replicate the test and evaluation procedures on a variety of carbon and graphitic foam materials.
