This study is devoted to the investigation of metallic foams based on tin-lead alloy (with 50% of tin content) by the liquid metal infiltration process. Uniaxial tensile tests were performed at room temperature in order to study mechanical properties of foams of different relative density and cell size. The samples were concurrently characterized on a microscopic scale (metallography and hardness) in order to link the morphological and mechanical characteristics of the constitutive phases.
