Abstract: Through the use of computed tomography and the TPS method, the authors of this article were able to calculate local effective thermal conductivities of aluminium foams synthesized through the powder metallurgical route. Computed tomography was first used in order to measure the density of a given area of the sample and this density was then used in the TPS measurements in order to generate local effective thermal conductivity values.
