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.

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