Abstract

The two-step mathematical model for heterogeneous media based on local thermal non-equilibrium (LTNE) is investigated in order to describe the rapid heating of living and perfused biological tissues that occurs during thermal therapy. Neither the numerical solutions nor the analytical solutions for this type of problem are well documented in the literature. This work uses a finite series ...
