Assign thermal properties of a material for a thermal model

`thermalProperties(thermalmodel,'ThermalConductivity',TCval,'MassDensity',MDval,'SpecificHeat',SHval)`

`thermalProperties(___,RegionType,RegionID)`

`mtl = thermalProperties(___)`

`thermalProperties(`

assigns material properties, such as thermal conductivity, mass density, and
specific heat. For transient analysis, specify all three properties. For
steady-state analysis, specifying thermal conductivity is enough. This syntax sets
material properties for the entire geometry.`thermalmodel`

,'ThermalConductivity',`TCval`

,'MassDensity',`MDval`

,'SpecificHeat',`SHval`

)

For a nonconstant or nonlinear material, specify `TCval`

,
`MDval`

, and `SHval`

as function
handles.

`thermalProperties(___,`

assigns material properties for a specified geometry region.`RegionType`

,`RegionID`

)

returns the material properties object.`mtl`

= thermalProperties(___)
