OPEN CELL FOAMS
Following from: Highly porous cellular foams
In their books, Baillis and Coquard (2008) and Dombrovsky and Baillis (2010) give comprehensive general overviews of the experimental approaches and theoretical models commonly used to determine the radiative properties of highly porous cell foams. Here, a summary is presented concerning open cell foams, but the reader is encouraged to consult the above-mentioned books for more details and specific results.
The results of the experimental characterizations of the spectral radiative properties of metallic, ceramic, and phenolic open cell foams have been reported by Hendricks and Howell (1996), Tseng and Kuo (2002) and Zhao et al. (2004). The radiative properties were identified from the transmittance and reflectance measurements using an identification proce ...
