Thin aluminum (Al) pipes filled with Al foam were fabricated by friction welding. In this study, thin Al pipes were formed from thin Al plates and were welded during the coating of a precursor by friction welding. It was shown that seamless Al foam-filled pipes with a uniform wall thickness can be realized. Compression tests on the Al foam-filled pipes revealed that the welding of the pipes had no effect on the generation of cracks in the pipes and their compression properties.
