AbstractA method to determine the macroscopic parameters of absorbent materials from the knowledge of their cellular microstructure, either identified by computer microtomography or scaled by macro-micro geometrical model is discussed. All the relevant quantities have been computed on cellular systems. Study of the fluid velocity field for a hexagonal porous system reveal significant quantitative agreement between macroscopic parameters derived and measured from real aluminum foam. The results reveal the deep relationship between Kelvin structure and real reticulated foams.
