This aim of this paper is to present the influence of density on the mechanical behaviour of steel metallic wool. The stress-density curves follow a power-law relationship in accordance with some models. The exponent of the power-law varies from 3 to 5 with the density and this evolution is correlated with the architecture of the metallic wool.
