Parameters
  • target (OpenPNM Base object) – Object with which this model is associated. This controls the length of the calculated array, and also provides access to other necessary properties.

  • throat_diameter (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target where the array containing pore diameter values is stored

Returns

areas – A numpy ndarray containing throat cross-sectional area values

Return type

ndarray
