About this Symposium
Meeting 11th International Conference on Porous Metals and Metallic Foams (MetFoam 2019)
Symposium MetFoam 2019
Organizer(s) Nihad Dukhan, University of Detroit Mercy
Scope The purpose of MetFoam conference series is to provide a state-of-the-art review on lightweight porous metals and metallic foams and a forum for discussions and networking opportunities for scientists working in this field. Topics planned for MetFoam 2019 include:

- Fabrication by conventional and novel methods including additive manufacturing
- Characterization
- Properties of compressed and un-compressed foam
- Design of porous metals, metallic foams, and lattice structures
- Fluid, heat, and mass transfer
- Porous biomaterials
- Nanoporous metals
- Industrial applications of porous metals and metallic foams

A metal foam is a cellular structure consisting of a solid metal with pores making up a large portion of the volume. A defining characteristic of metal foams is their high porosity typically 75 to 95%, making these materials ultralight with applications including energy (e.g., catalysis, fuel cells), biomaterials (e.g., bone implants), and transportation (e.g., sound dampening, energy absorption).
