This work presents an overview of structural characteristics and basic mechanical properties of the open-cell metallic foams obtained by different space-holder methods, which are discussed in Part I of the same review. The presentation is arranged with respect to foam material, and the structure and properties are compared for different space holders and production techniques. In order to have more clear information for the structures obtained and their relation with production techniques, many images are provided and discussed. Compressive behavior of the foams is shown, and stress–strain curves are analyzed with respect to the energy absorption characteristics. The analysis are made on the basis of different porosities and processing parameters. Some applications of the open-cell metallic foams are discussed in the end of the article.
