Review of Aluminum Foam Applications in Architecture

Sasan Farhadi, Dorsa Kafili and Shervin Ziadloo




The application of aluminum foam materials is increasing rapidly due to the high demand during the last decades. This research presents an overview of the characteristics and architectural applications of aluminum foam materials. Moreover, it represents the most relevant properties, in particular, physical and mechanical aspects and figures out the prospects and growth rate of these materials in architectures by considering the economic benefits. Besides, based on these specific characterizations, the most valuable applications along with advantageous in architectural works are discussed.

Keywords: Aluminum Foam Materials, Architectural Application, Mechanical Properties, Economic Benefits.
