Carbon foams have potential applications in thermal management of electronics and aerospace industries due to their low density and high thermal conductivity. These foams have open or closed pores that are approximately spherical. This paper presents a finite element analysis of the thermomechanical properties of carbon foams with randomly distributed spherical pores. The results are presented in nondimensional form and compared with theoretical and finite element analysis values obtained for cellular foams. The effect of pore distribution on the effective thermal conductivity of foams is also presented.
