generic_thermal

openpnm.models.physics.thermal_conductance.generic_thermal(target, pore_conductivity='pore.thermal_conductivity', throat_conductivity='throat.thermal_conductivity', size_factors='throat.diffusive_size_factors')[source]

Calculate the thermal 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_conductivity (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target pointing to the array containing values of thermal conductivity

  • throat_conductivity (str) – Name of the dictionary key on target pointing to the array containing values of throat thermal conductivity

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

Returns

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

Return type

ndarray
