Aluminum and its reinforced type with glass fiber composite foams were produced by powder sintering process using spherical carbamide particles as a space holder. The foams with 40-60 vol.% porosity fractions were successfully produced after water leaching and sintering methods. Compression test was performed on both of the foam samples for comparing the compressive properties and energy absorption behavior of them. The composite foam samples with glass fiber reinforcement showed higher compressive strength than the parent material foam.
