The structural and mechanical properties of open-porous cellular materials are often described in terms of simple beam-based models. A common assumption in these models is that the pore walls have a constant cross section, which may be in agreement for a vast majority of such materials. However, for many of those materials that are characterized by a pearl-necklace-like network, this assumption seems too idealized. Aerogels are perfect examples of such materials. In this paper, we investigate the effect of such pore walls having a string of pearls-like morphology on the properties of such open-porous materials. First, the pore size is mathematically modeled. Three scenarios are described, where the pore sizes are calculated for cells in 2D, 3D, and 3D with overlapping particles. The dependency of the skeletal features on the resulting pore size is investigated. In the second part, pore walls with 3D overlapping spheres are modeled and subjected to axial stretching, bending, and buckling. The effect of the particle sizes and the amount of overlap between the particles on the mechanical features is simulated and illustrated. The results are also compared with models that assume a constant cross section of pore-walls. It can be observed that neglecting the corrugations arising from the pearl-necklace-like morphology in open-porous cellular materials can result in serious miscalculations of their mechanical behavior. The goal of this paper is not to quantify the bulk mechanical properties of the materials by accounting for the pearl-necklace-like morphology but rather to demonstrate the significant deviations that may arise when not accounted for.
