I have been asked to model a volume of open cell foam.
I can obviously model a cube as the etremities of the volume, but how would I create a pattern of random sized voids within the cube.
I would want to control the size, position & orientation of the voids with parameters such that I can change these to achieve diferent densities of foam.
Even if the voids were all a constant size (although in practice they are not) it would still be useful.
Any Ideas ?
Yes, it does seem like a strange thing to model, but it is actually quite critical to a R & D project that my company is developing. The properties, i.e. volume & mass, are important with regard to heat transfer (the foam is actually a metal foam).
I for one would be curious to know your solution.
Sounds pretty awesome...if you're able to do so... share a picture.
