Influence of porosity on Tensile Mechanical Properties of Sintered Porous Silver Films
This paper investigates the porosity-dependent tensile mechanical properties of porous 8-10 μm thick silver films. The silver films are fabricated by pressure press, the variety of which changes the porosity (p) ranging 5% to 25%. p is determined by use of scanning electron microscopy cross-section images of the films. Stress-strain (S-S) curves are obtained by tensile tests performed for the porous and bulk silver films.Breaking strain and Ultimate tensile strengh decrease almost linearly with increase of p.
