Multi Conductor

Multiple Thermal Conductors

 Description The Multi Conductor component models multiple Thermal Conductors. The total number of Thermal Conductor components is determined by the $\mathrm{Nodes}$ parameter. The following image is an example with Thermal Conductor components to explain the behavior of Multi Conductor component.
