Thermal resistance of medium in the duct

Thermal resistance between cable and duct.

The equation for ducts with bentonite filling is based on the conduction shape factor of a cylinder surrounded by an eccentric cylinder of larger radius, refer to Table 5.4 in the book "A Heat Transfer Textbook" by John H. Lienhard IV and V (Phlogiston Press 2008) or to table 3.5 in the book "Heat Transfer - A Practical Approach" by Yunus A. Cengel (2014). It is assumed that the cables are in the duct so that it comes to contact.
