The mechanical behavior of 20 ppi open cells Al6061 alloy foam is studied under uniaxial tensile, compression and bending loads. In addition to the common stress–strain measurements, peak load, ultimate stress, displacement at peak load, break load, displacement at break load, breaking stress and Percentage reduction in the cross-sectional area for two specimens were determined. The results show that even though aluminium foams were having good thermal and damping properties, they are having poor mechanical properties hence they are not suitable load bearing structures
