In this paper, a ceramic open foam is modelled using a two-step procedure. First, a random Laguerre tessellation is fitted to the edge system of the polyurethane foam forming the core of the ceramic foam. In a second phase, a model of the ceramic foam is obtained using dilations with balls of locally varying size. The model fitting is based on geometric characteristics of both polyurethane and ceramic foam estimated from reconstructed tomographic images of these structures.
