Influence of the Morphology of Joining on the Heat Transfer Properties of Periodic Metal Hollow Sphere Structures
Hollow sphere structures (HSS) constitute a group of innovative materials which are characterised by more constant material properties compared to classical cellular metals . Their big potential lies within multifunctional applications where combinations of their proper- ties yield symbiotic advantages. In the scope of this paper their effective thermal conductivity is investigated. In addition to the analysis of the dependency of this material parameter on the conductivities of the base materials and the sphere wall thickness, special focus is given to the influence of the morphology of joining.
