Paper Title:
Numerical Prediction of the Effective Thermal Conductivity of Open- and Closed-Cell Foam Structures
  Abstract

This paper investigates the thermal properties of metallic open-cell and closed-cell foam structures in space filling and non-space filling configurations. In both, i.e. open-cell and closed-cell structures, a linear trend depending on the relative density has been reported. However the closed-cell structures compared to open-cell ones have a higher thermal conductivity for the same relative density.
