We demonstrate the ability to calculate thermal conductance and elastic properties on three-dimensional images of industrial polymer foamed materials. Results for thermal conductivity and elasticity show little scatter and provide the basis for accurate empirical correlations between phase fraction and material properties. The correlations differ markedly from common theoretical and empirically derived estimates.
