Abstract

Electric conductance of percolation clusters is calculated by means of the random circuit approximation, under a binary distribution in the size of the conducting particles. Although we have already investigated the same size distribution model in terms of the percolation threshold, the electric transport conductance of this model is never reported before. The size distribution of conducting particles induces a clear difference in the ensemble of random circuit. However, the observed critical behavior and critical exponents are closely matched to those reported for monodisperse cases.
