The cover shows a composite part of a METCOMB aluminium foam core inserted into a casting produced according to a BMW engine mounting bracket provided by D. Leitlmeier (ARC Light Metals Competence Center Ranshofen GmbH, Hütte Klein-Reichenbach). The application of aluminum foam yielded a potential for mechanical damping as well as an increase in stiffness of about 25 %.
