Overview of Submodule

openpnm.models.physics


This submodule contains models for calculating properties related to physical transport processes, including conductances, reaction rates, and capillary effects

Detailed Model Documentation

Capillary Pressure

Pore-scale models for calculating the capillary pressure in pores/throats.


Diffusive Conductance

Pore-scale models for calculating the diffusive conductance of conduits.


Electrical Conductance

Pore-scale models for calculating the electrical conductance of conduits.


Hydraulic Conductance

Pore-scale models for calculating hydraulic conductance of conduits.


Thermal Conductance

Pore-scale models for calculating the thermal conductance of conduits.


Multiphase

Pore-scale models relevant to multiphase simulations.

Poisson Shape Factors

Conduit shape factors’ models to correct for the deviation from cylinders in series assumption for Poisson-like physics such as mass diffusion or electrical conduction, etc.

This submodule is deprecated and will be removed the near future. Use openpnm.models.geometry.diffusive_size_factors instead.

Flow Shape Factors

Conduit shape factors’ models to correct for the deviation from cylinders in series assumption for fluid flow physics such as StokesFlow.

This submodule is deprecated and will be removed the near future. Use openpnm.models.geometry.hydraulic_size_factors instead.

Source Terms

Pore-scale models to be used as source term (e.g. reaction) in algorithms.
