Calculate transport properties in a porous medium using the dusty gas transport model.

The Dusty Gas model is a multicomponent transport model for gas transport
through the pores of a stationary porous medium. This example shows how to
create a transport manager that implements the Dusty Gas model and use it to
compute the multicomponent diffusion coefficients and thermal conductivity.
