    p = { 0 , 'Pa' };
    T = { 0 , 'K' };

end

It contains the following variables and parameters:

  • Across variable p (pressure), in Pa

  • Through variable G (mass flow rate), in kg/s

  • Across variable T (temperature), in kelvin

  • Through variable Q (heat flow), in J/s

  • Parameter gam, defining the ratio of specific heats

  • Parameter c_p, defining specific heat at constant pressure

  • Parameter c_v, defining specific heat at constant volume

  • Parameter R, defining specific gas constant

  • Parameter viscosity, specifying the gas viscosity

  • Parameter Pa, specifying the ambient pressure

  • Parameter Ta, specifying the ambient temperature

These parameter values correspond to gas properties for dry air and ambient conditions of 101325 Pa and 20 degrees Celsius.

To refer to this domain in your custom component declarations, use the following syntax:
