The open porosity is defined as the fraction of volume that is occupied by the fluid in the interconnected porous network. Non-interconnected voids trapped in the solid phase are not part of the open porosity; they are part of the closed porosity. The true bulk density is in the vacuum density of the porous aggregate.
Equipment: Porosity and Density Meter
Method 1: Isothermal pressure/mass method 
Method 2: Missing mass method to measure open porosity of porous solid 
Properties: ϕ – open porosity; ρ – true bulk density (kg/m³)
