- salinity(target, temperature='pore.temperature', concentration='pore.concentration')#
Calculates the salinity in g salt per kg of solution from concentration
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.
temperature (str) – Name of the dictionary key on
targetwhere the array containing temperature values is stored
concentration (str) – The dictionary key containing the concentration values, in SI units of mol/m3.
salinity – The salinity in g of solute per kg of solution.
- Return type
This model is useful for converting known concentration values (e.g. calculated by a transport algorithm) into salinity values, which can then be used for finding other physical properties of water which are available as a function of salinity.
The salinity correlations are valid for salinity up to 160 g/kg, which corresponds to a concentration of 0.05 mol/L (assuming NaCl is the only solute)
