The application of microwave energy for thermal processing of different materials and substances is a rapidly growing trend in modern science and engineering. In fact, optimal design work involving microwaves is impossible without solid knowledge of the properties of these materials. Here's a practical reference for engineers that collects essential data on the dielectric and thermal properties of microwaveable materials.
• Saves practitioners countless hours on projects in a wide range of areas, including microwave design and heating, applied electrodynamics, food science, and medical technology.
• Presents critical data on various materials and explaining what their key characteristics are concerning microwaves.
