Basic component of Contact between 2 objects
The Heat Contact component models contact between 2 objects which is controlled by the signal input.
The following image is an example with Thermal Conductor component to explain the behavior of Heat Contact component.
When sw is true , the contact is valid and the component has heat resistance R__on.
When sw is false , the contact is invalid and the component has heat conductance G__off.
