In this article, we present a proposition of a model of the compressive behaviour of open- -cell aluminium with relation to the material apparent density. The research was based on experimental data from uniaxial compression tests conducted for two sample lots. These results were analysed with the use of neural networks in a specially designed algorithm. The main criterion for choosing a satisfactory approximation was mean absolute relative error MARE<5%. As a result of the analysis, the sought relation was extracted and is presented as a proposition of a new ANN model of the compressive stress-strain relationship for aluminium sponge.
