Cover Story (view full-size image): The cell structure of aluminum foams fabricated under increased pressure is fined because high pressure reduces bubble coalescing and hinders gravity drainage. The compressive displacement–load curve of foam-filled tube is smoothed with the decrease of foam cell size, which leads to the increase of not only energy absorption but also energy absorption efficiency. This indicates that the aluminum foams fabricated by the increased pressure foaming route are an appropriate core material to improve the engineering applications of foam-filled tubes.
