Calculates the diffusive conductance of conduits in network considering the Taylor-Aris effect (effect of flow on diffusion).

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_area (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target pointing to the array containing values of pore cross-sectional area

  • throat_area (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target pointing to the array containing values of throat cross-sectional area

  • pore_diffusivity (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target pointing to the array containing values of pore diffusivity

  • throat_diffusivity (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target pointing to the array containing values of pore diffusivity

  • pore_pressure (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target pointing to the array containing values of pore pressure

  • throat_hydraulic_conductance (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target pointing to the array containing values of throat hydraulic conductance

  • size_factors (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target pointing to the array containing values of conduit size factors

Returns

values – A numpy ndarray containing the computed values of diffusive conductance

Return type

ndarray
