  • In many literatures the researchers pointed out that the using metal foam will significantly enhance the performance of heat exchanger. This paper focuses on theory study of metal foam, including calculation method of properties of foam (permeability ��K, inertial coefficient f, fiber diameter $d_f$, and effective conductivity $k_e$), model of pressure drop and model of heat transfer. Theory analysis on the performance of heat exchanger will be presented here. Finally the optimal material will be obtained from theory calculation.
