- Cellular (foam-like) and porous materials are employed in a wide range of applications including heat and mass transfer where the thermal properties determine the efficiency. Combining different physical properties, e.g., high mechanical damping together with heat insulation and relatively high specific stiffness, offers the possibility for numerous new future-oriented applications in the automotive, aerospace and other industries. Providing the reader with a solid understanding of the fundamentals as well as an awareness of recent advances in properties and applications of cellular and porous materials, this handbook and ready reference covers analytical and numerical methods for characterizing and predicting thermal properties. In so doing it directly addresses the special characteristics of foam-like and hole-riddled materials, combining theoretical and experimental aspects for characterization purposes.
