This library provides steady-state conduction functions for:
A shape factor, S, is defined as: S=1/(k R) where
k is the thermal conductivity of material separating two surfaces
R is the thermal resistance between the surfaces
The shape factor has units of length (m or ft).
The shape factor provides a convenient way to determine the thermal resistance, as explained in section 2.1 of Nellis and Klein.
