idk what the thermal multipliers are for gas-debri, liquid-debri, or solid-debri interactions.

Generally, debris will transfer heat with the cell it is in at this rate:

1000*k_min*ΔT

If it cannot transfer heat with the cell it is in, it will transfer with the cell below it at 1/4th the rate it would above. The phase of the medium doesn't matter. The mass doesn't matter (for the heat transfer rate).

k_min is the smaller of the two thermal conductivities and ΔT is the difference in temperature. There are checks for clamping and equilibrium. Duplicants are debris and have a modifier for thickness of their clothes. Wheezeworts and possibly other entities have special modifiers.

That post flew over my head the first time I read it. Time to spend another hour on it.

Spoiler

If only we could send dead dupes on rails to cool our base...

Yeah, probably for everyone. For the first 18 times we read it in earnest. If you have a science degree.
