A new equation E = E 0(1 - bp) n has been derived semi-impirically to describe the porosity dependence of elastic properties of thermosetting polymers. The material constant b is defined as a "pore distribution geometry factor" and the other material constant n is dependent on pore geometry. The equation shows good agreement with the data on porous polyester and epoxy resins.
