spheres_and_cylinders

openpnm.models.geometry.throat_length.spheres_and_cylinders(target, pore_diameter='pore.diameter', throat_diameter='throat.diameter')[source]

Finds throat length assuming pores are spheres and throats are cylinders.

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.

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

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

Returns

lengths – A numpy ndarray containing throat length values

Return type

ndarray
