Bio-Organism Damage under the Influence of Microwave Heating
Abstract: In this paper, we setup a simple model to understand the damage of bio-organism under the influence of microwave heating based on the bio-heat transfer equation and Arrhenius equation. Detailed information of temperature distribution and fraction of damage is presented. Results show that microwave heating is effective in the damage of bio-organism.
