cylinder

openpnm.models.geometry.throat_surface_area.cylinder(target, throat_diameter='throat.diameter', throat_length='throat.length')[source]

Calculate surface area for a cylindrical throat

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_length (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target where the array containing throat length values is stored

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

Returns

surface_areas – A numpy ndarray containing throat surface area values

Return type

ndarray
