The main purpose of this study was to confirm operability and effectiveness of the complex methods developed for theoretical prediction and experimental-computational determining some properties of modern highly porous materials, used as thermal protection shields in objects of space engineering, power engineering, etc. Them concern Fibrous Materials (FM), Open-Cell Reticulated Foams (OCRF) etc. The basis for the method proposed is in the combination of Direct Mathematical Simulation (DMS) for global structure of the complex irregular systems, which have the property of local regularity and Inverse Heat Transfer Problem (IHTP) methods. This approach makes possible to obtain and to predict such properties as radiation and molecular thermal conductivities, energy accommodation coefficient, complex refractive index, scattering indicatrix, scattering and absorption factors, etc. Such problems are of great practical importance in the study of material properties.
