Design Models

The syntactic design process is based on various mathematical models that predict the foam properties. These models are published in reputed journals and have been employed and cited by various researchers, scientists and academicians. Some of the models are relatively easy in terms of the scientific methods employed and others are quite complex. These models require assumptions that may not confer with real life physical behavior of materials and only provide an approximate solution with some deviations to experimental values. Rigorous research and modifications in these models has resulted in low deviations and made these models a viable method for predicting material properties.
