Paper Abstract

Ceramic foams are new class of materials that employ as medium of porous burners. In this study, pressure drop through foams was investigated. An experimental set up was made to measure pressure drop through the ceramic foams. Nine types of various Alumina and Silicon carbide foams has been investigated. In order to examine the effect of temperature increase on pressure drop a heater has been employed. A model was presented for measurement of hydraulic pore diameter. A dimensional analysis was carried out and a new formula based on it has been offered. The offered correlation have different coefficients for Alumina and Silicon carbide foams.
