In this research work, closed aluminum foams produced by powder metallurgy method, the aging heat treatment was performed on samples to evaluate the effect of copper as an alloying element and TiB2 as reinforcement on the mechanical properties of aluminum foams. The results indicated that, in this alloy foam, TiB2 particles play minor role on the mechanical properties, while the aging heat treatment enhanced the mechanical properties of the foam samples dramatically. In addition, the size of age hardening precipitates was smaller than the external reinforcement.
