Foam is defined as a uniform dispersion of a gaseous phase in a liquid, seperated by a thin film of liquid making a cell or pore. This morphology when preserved in solid state is known as solid foam or cellular solid. When we talk about metal foam, it is understood to have uniformly distributed gas pores in solid metal with volume fraction in the range of 40-98%.
