An overview of the present-day theoretical analytical and computational models developed to study infrared radiative properties of various highly porous foam materials is presented. Both traditional and novel physical models are discussed in some detail. These models enable the identification and analysis of spectral radiative properties of different highly porous foam materials. Several practical examples of various materials such as polymeric closed-cell foam insulation, metallic, carbon, and ceramic open-cell foam are considered, showing recent advances and identifying remaining challenges.
