Abstract : This survey is composed of information from the reports and publications available in January, 1976, on Cryogenic Foam Insulation. One group of documents, listed alphabetically by first author, was chosen to include the most important or most informative papers on the properties and applications of foams. An abstract has been prepared for each document in this group, and the most important references are listed as found in the document. Another group of documents, also listed alphabetically by author, generally includes less important papers than those in the first group. Some important papers are in the second group because information from them has been reviewed or repeated in documents included in the first group. An author index and a subject index are provided. The indexes cover the authors and subjects of both groups of documents.
