Highly porous cellular foams

DOI: 10.1615/thermopedia.000164


Nature frequently uses cellular porous materials for functional purposes, such as bones, honeycombs, and foams (Banhart, 2001). Drawing inspiration from nature and this asset, the development of artificial cellular materials has greatly increased in the recent past. Such cellular materials are widely used today in many fields of technology. They are known to have many interesting combinations of physical, mechanical, and thermal properties. Their main characteristic is their very low density, inducing significant radiative transfer. There is a wide range of applications for these materials, such as use in shock absorbers, heat exchangers, filters, catalyst carrie ...
