    I just remembered that perforated plate is  another common product used for dissipating energy, damping waves, redistributing flow, or creating a specified velocity or flow distribution in various devices. For example, power plant precipitators depend on ideal flow distribution to remove 99.99 % of  partially combusted  particles (particularly in coal fired plants). Perf plate, which comes with various open area ratios, is ideal for physical modeling of these systems. Velocity distributions are "forced" in the models to evaluate changes in performance.  Anyway, at one point I went looking for some scrap perf plate for damping an AH pool.  Could not find a scrap and just went to a mirror.

    If memory serves, the proper name is "reticulated foam." In the
    seventies UniRoyal produced an orange version for fuel cells.
