Typical Physical Properties of Open-Cell Silicon Carbide
Thermal properties of silicon carbide foam produced to 10 vol% dense (0.32 g/cm3). Thermal expansion is independent of vol% density and matches that of solid silicon carbide.
Strength and Young’s modulus as a function of bulk density for open-cell silicon carbide foam
Pressure drop data for water flow through 2 × 3 × ½” slabs of silicon carbide foam with water flowing parallel to the long axis of the sample; 80- and 100-ppi foams with relative densities of 20 and 30% were tested.
