- openpnm.models.geometry.throat_volume.cylinder(target, throat_length='throat.length', throat_diameter='throat.diameter')¶
Calculate throat volume assuing a cylindrical shape
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
targetwhere the array containing throat length values is stored
throat_diameter (str) – Name of the dictionary key on
targetwhere the array containing pore diameter values is stored
volumes – A numpy ndarray containing throat volume values
- Return type
This models does not account for the volume reprsented by the intersection of the throat with a spherical pore body. Use the
pendular_ringmodels in addition to this one to account for this volume.
