The book covers the origins of voids in materials, how they are sometimes introduced in the form of hollow spheres, and the resultant properties of materials containing voids.There are many books that focus on foams (which intentionally incorporate voids into materials) and that cover voids incidental to or unwanted in the fabrication of non-porous materials. In fact, all materials have voids. This book starts from the premise that voids are pervasive in all material on some level. It goes beyond foams to provide a comprehensive overview of voids, a central reference for scientists and engineers to use for the effect of voids in materials.Includes 3D renderings of void geometriesExplains how and why voids are introduced into materials across the length scales- from nanometer-scale voids up to macro-scale voidsProvides a continuous picture of how material properties change as the volume fraction of voids increases, and the implications for product design
