Topics planned for MetFoam 2023 include, but are not limited to:

  • Research in fabrication of cellular metals by conventional and novel methods:
    • Foaming, sintering, moulding, etc.
    • Special topical focus: Theory and practice of additively manufactured cellular metals, i. e. lattice structures, scaffolds etc.
  • Characterization and properties of cellular metals:
    • Novel characterization methods
    • Mechanical properties
    • Fluid, heat, and mass transfer properties
    • Other properties related to the morphological description and applications of cellular metals
  • Design and simulation of open and closed cell porous metals
  • Porous metallic biomaterials
  • Nanoporous metals
  • Application studies and industrial applications of porous metals and metallic foams.

A facultative visit of the Fraunhofer IFAM labs in Dresden and the Fraunhofer IWU Metal Foam Center in Chemnitz will be offered as part of the conference.
