Abstract


In this paper, the effective heat conductivity of periodic open cellular structures (POCS) is investigated by means of a systematic numerical study. 3D geometries of different configurations were considered, representing the unit cell volume of the modular POCS. Special emphasis is put on the strut morphology, i.e. the strut cross sectional shape and the distribution of the solid material along the strut. At the same porosity, the optimal designed structures show a higher effective heat conductivity than conventional open-cell solid foams with random cell geometry. This possibility to exceed the effective thermal conductivity of state-of-the-art open-cell foams by optimization of their geometrical properties is an interesting novel aspect of high relevance regarding their application in catalytic reactors.
