The effects of geometrical shapes are believed to play significant role in the deformation of metal foams under impact loading. This research was carried out to investigate the deformation behaviour of a single cellular cell of metal foam with different geometrical shapes. The simulation analyses were done on various two dimensional shapes with the consideration of the material properties. Two parameter values had been studied to determine the dynamic deformation behaviour of various geometrical shapes i.e. the internal energy and kinetic energy. It is found that, the geometrical shapes have shown significant effects on the dynamic deformation of single metal foam cell. It is hoped that this study could contribute significant result to the research of the metal foams especially in analyzing the shape effects to the behaviour of the metal foam under impact loading.
