One can easily see that the low temperature part of all curves can be approximated fairly well by straight lines.
Simple Lattice-Models of Ion Conduction: Counter Ion Model vs. Random Energy Model
A non-radiative shock is one that heats plasma to a fairly high temperature, and that has encountered the plasma so recently that the shocked gas has had insufficient time to radiatively cool (McKee & Hollenbach 1980).
Far Ultraviolet Spectra of a Non-Radiative Shock Wave in the Cygnus Loop
Still, on the question, what is the finite temperature conductivity of bulk electronic or magnetic systems described by strongly interacting one dimensional Hamiltonians, it is fair to say that no definite answer has so far emerged nor there is a clear picture of the relevant scattering mechanisms.
Transport in one dimensional quantum systems

P (fair coin) measures the a priori probability of a fair coin and P ({σn}) measures the probability that this particular sequence will arise, averaged over all possible models that might describe it; schematically we can write P ({σn }) = Xall models and of course one of the possible models is the fair coin.
Should you believe that this coin is fair?
If one is unsure of the shape of the hazard, then one can use any of the convolution kernels that one finds in classical kernel based density estimation, where, for y = (m, σ) ∈ (−∞, ∞) × (0, ∞), a fairly simple choice is the rectangular kernel k(x|m, σ) = I{|x−m|≤σ} .
