Microstructure-Based Models for Multi-Functional Material Systems Academic Article uri icon


  • A method to transform X-ray tomography into a detailed finite element model is developed to characterize the response of multi-functional carbon foams. The model incorporates ligament anisotropy and coatings at multiple scales to illustrate the tailorability of material systems for coupled mechanical, electrical, and thermal loads. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
