link-class: Class '"link"'

Description Objects from the Class Slots Methods Author(s) References See Also


This class represents a link between mixed reactors. A link is characterized by the two reactors it connects to, the flow through the link, advective transfer coefficients, and diffusive exchange coefficients.

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("link", ...).
