Using numerical and analytical analysis this paper addresses the effective thermal conductivity, Young's modulus, and the 0.2%-offset yield strength of lotus-type porous copper. Special consideration is given to the anisotropy of the material. In order to guarantee accurate discretization of the complex material geometry, calculation models are based here for the first time directly on microcomputed tomography data. Comparison with available experimental data is made: good agreement is found.
