Default second thermal conductivity term in ANSYS

BigBoBy is on a distinguished road
I would like to introduce a second thermal conductivity term in the energy equation in ANSYS. It has the same form as the "normal" heat conduction: k \nabla T. Only the prefactor (k) is different (k is a function that depends on Temperature).

Is it possible to add a value to the thermal conductivity using a UDF? If yes, which function can I use for this? Or do I simply add another term with DEFINE_DIFFUSIVITY?

I appreciate any thoughts or help
