Abstract: Engineering applications of ceramic foams Nature offers several examples of cellular materials, such as cork and sponges that man has been using for thousands of years; only recently, he started producing artificial materials mimicking these structures. This approach allowed to extend the range of materials’ physical properties, allowing engineering solutions unfeasible with dense matter. In the last decade, there has been an increasing interest in the development of highly porous ceramic materials. In fact, these materials show the unique capability of conjugating properties of ceramics (high temperature resistance, chemical inertia) to properties typical of their cellular structure (low density, high permeability, thermal shock resistance). The aim of this PhD work is to explore ceramic foams for two different engineering fields: energy conversion systems and biomaterials. A method for the preparation of ceramic foams was developed, involving the preparation of a ceramic powder l...
