Abstract


In the present paper two representative models applied for modeling of two types of porous materials - open-cell foams and open-porosity tapes - are addressed. Algorithms presented here base on Laguerre-Voronoi tessellations (open-cell foams) and the sphere representation (open-porosity tapes) and enable creating the desired porosity and pore size distribution. The geometrical features of the models, such as: porosity, mean pore size, cell diameter distribution and number of faces per cell were compared with those obtained by 3D micro-computed tomography and good agreement was obtained.
