Abstract: This research article delves into the thermal conductivity monitoring of open-cell foams. The foams are created through an intense procedure, in which slip reaction foam sintering is employed. Prior to measuring the thermal conductivities of the foams, a multiscale approach, taking into consideration the homogenization method, was used to predict thermal conductivity values. To obtain experimental results, the Hot Disk Transient Plane Source method was then used to determine the thermal conductivity of the open-cell foams. The experimental results were then compared to the predicted values.
