fuller_scaling(target, DABo, To=298.0, Po=101325, temperature='pore.temperature', pressure='pore.pressure')[source]#

Uses Fuller correlation to adjust a diffusion coefficient for gases from reference conditions to conditions of interest

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.

  • DABo (float) – Diffusion coefficient at reference conditions

  • Po (float) – Pressure at reference conditions

  • To (float) – Temperature at reference conditions

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

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

Returns

diffusivities – A numpy ndarray containing diffusion coefficient values [m2/s].

Return type

ndarray
