The present study is concerned with a numerical procedure for prediction of uncertainties in the effective properties of solid foams. The approach is based on the multiple homogenization analysis of small-scale testing volume elements. Their microstructure is defined in terms of random variables with known probability distribution. Using a discretization of the space of the random variables, the probability distribution for the effective properties can easily be determined from the homogenization results and the probability for occurrence of the underlying microstructures of the testing volume elements.
