Porous media such as cellular or fibrous materials present performance in combination with physical, mechanical, and thermal properties. They are very interesting materials for use in aerospace, automotive, marine, and building applications. There is a wide range of applications for these materials, such as in shock absorbers, heat exchangers, filters, catalyst carriers, or insula ...
