hagen_poiseuille

openpnm.models.physics.hydraulic_conductance.hagen_poiseuille(target, pore_viscosity='pore.viscosity', throat_viscosity='throat.viscosity', size_factors='throat.hydraulic_size_factors')[source]

Calculates the hydraulic conductance of conduits in network.

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_viscosity (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target pointing to the array containing values of pore viscosity

  • throat_viscosity (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target pointing to the array containing values of throat viscosity

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

Returns

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

Return type

ndarray
