ERG Materials - Aerospace - capabilities

Duocel® Foam Capabilities Guide


ERG has amassed a great deal of engineering expertise over the past 40 years, expertise in both designing and manufacturing Duocel® foam metal components. Our engineers can design and optimize Duocel® foam components for performance and manufacturability in a broad variety of applications.

For example, we have detailed thermal models for predicting and optimizing the performance of Duocel® metal foam heat exchangers. We have mechanical properties test data that can be used to calculate and predict the performance of Duocel® foams for impact absorption and structural applications. If you contact us today our engineers can quickly determine if Duocel® foam components would be viable in your particular application.

Bonding / Brazing

It is possible to bond Duocel® products utilizing conventional epoxies and adhesives. Such bonding agents must be compatible to the Duocel® base material and its finished operating environment. Bonding is considered a cost saving alternative to brazing.

Brazing is common among our thermal management products to increase their heat transfer efficiency. Specialized brazing techniques and processes are necessary to ensure the highest quality in our products.

Heat Treating

Duocel® metal foams are available in many heat treatable conditions that are derived from the parent material alloy. ERG Aerospace’s general practice is to provide Duocel® in a T6 or equivalent condition to maximize the strength and durability of the ligaments.


Our dedicated Duocel® foam metal machine shop covers over 20,000 sqft, and is comprised of both manual and CNC machines. Precision machinery coupled with decades of experience by our machinists assures the highest quality Duocel® components and assemblies. Our experience and knowledge in machining open-celled metal foams is unmatched by anyone in the world. We also maintain the unique ability to have our engineering staff co-located in the same building allowing our engineers the flexibility to ensure the Duocel® components meet your required performance criteria.

Duocel® foams are unique materials which require special proprietary fabrication and manufacturing processes that ERG Aerospace corporation has developed over the last 40 years. We work with our customers to define the performance requirements and optimize the Duocel® component design. We then perform the fabrication and machining to ensure the product meets your quality and performance requirements. For this reason, we do not sell Duocel® foams in raw or bulk form, but only as finished end item components. This ultimately saves everyone time and money, and results in a superior cost-effective product.

Plating / Chemical Films

Duocel® foam metals are capable of taking on additional plating or chemical film. Plating is used to increase the primary foam’s corrosion resistance, surface finish, thermal transfer properties, and electrical conductivity. Common metal plating includes nickel, gold, silver and platinum. Plating also reduces the cost of having to manufacture the primary foam in an expensive alloy.

Chemical film coatings and anodized foam are also utilized when additional environmental protection is desired such as in space flight applications.


There are many Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and Destructive Testing (DT) methods that can be employed to quantitatively characterize the Duocel® foam materials. Some of these tests include airflow, stress/strain, corrosion, X-ray, filtering, salt and leak testing.



Which are the best books for basic aeronautical engineering?

Good question! While many people talk about the huge differences between aeronautical engineering and mechanical engineering, they are in general very similar, with aeronautical engineering being highly specialized mechanical engineering with a few additions in knowledge (in areas like aerodynamics, structures, propulsion). Here is a list in learning the basics of aeronautical engineering.

Introduction to Flight: John D. Anderson Jr. - This book is a good introduction to the various aspects of aeronautical engineering, going through the physics and seminal moments in the history of aviation, so you get an understanding of how hard won the knowledge was. Doesn’t require very much background except a solid grounding in algebra, basic physics, and some basic calculus. You won’t be able to design an aircraft after reading this book, but you’ll at least understand why aircraft look the way they do.

Aircraft Design: A Conceptual Approach: Daniel P. Raymer - This book is a good introduction to the design of aircraft. Not going into the weeds for detailed design, this book goes into how to size parts of the aircraft. Requires a little bit of knowledge of aerodynamics, but is still a good introductory text as you see what influences an aircraft design most (like engine specific impulse and airframe stiffness).

Fundamentals of Aerodynamics: John D. Anderson Jr. - This book is a good introduction into aerodynamics. Really the meat of aeronautical engineering, this is the text that will not be covered in mechanical engineering in depth. Goes into depth on how an aircraft generates lift, drag, and how to maximize lift to drag ratio. Goes into the design of wings, balancing an airframe aerodynamically, and a little into the design of airfoils.

Elements of Gas Turbine Propulsion: Jack D. Mattingly - A good book going through the fundamentals of how an aircraft generates thrust using turbine engines, this goes through the sizing of the engine along with a detailed cycle analysis. Most of this is mechanical engineering, as it is heavy thermal analysis, but some of it includes aerodynamics as it goes through intake design and nozzle design. Touches slightly on how to design compressors, turbines, stators, and combustion chambers.

Fundamentals of Aircraft Structural Analysis- Howard D. Curtis: A good book building up how the aircraft structures are designed and analyzed, this will be fairly familiar to most of what is covered in mechanical engineering with the exception of minimizing weight. This book will go through bending, buckling, and twisting, along with analysis of thin membranes and shells. Goes through an actual design example of designing an aircraft airframe after being given the aerodynamic loads and flight envelope.

While reading these books won’t make you into a master aircraft designer, they will get you started towards becoming one. Good luck!
