Metal foam

Aluminium 93.8% - calcium 5% - titanium hydride 1.2% (porosity 86%)

The ratio between the size of the largest and smallest cells or thickness of cell walls was approximately one order of magnitude. Cell wall buckling are prominent, some of them are fractured. Microstructure made up of Al dendrites with some Al-Ca-Ti eutectic and 0.29% oxide content.
