To assess the thermal effect of microwave treatment on the LLC-bearing mice, a single pulse of microwave radiation was adopted, and the Veterinary Thermal Imaging Camera (Olympus, Japan) was applied to generate thermal images and detect core body temperature of the mice [Figure 1]a.
The thermal effect of heating subcutaneous fat tissue layer promotes the release of liquid fat from the cells.
The several studies suggest that the thermal effect of ultrasound helps to increase tissue extensibility, reduce pain, increase metabolism and increase deep tissue blood flow, while non-thermal effects provide an analgesic effect on neural structures (14-16).
If the fault slips just a little, the friction could melt the rock and that could provide the fluid, so you would get a runaway thermal effect.
Thermal effect plays an important role in RF and microwave power amplifiers (PA) where transistors are scaled into sub-micron size geometry and operated with high current densities.
The thermal effect is dominant in some applications such as geothermal structures (Laloui L, 2003).
PHYSICIAN'S DEFENSE Perforation was a delayed thermal effect that did not occur until 2 days after the procedure.
The StarCut Tube Femto reportedly cuts sensitive materials such as gold, platinum, shape memory alloys and low-melting point polymers with high precision and cut quality, and no thermal effect.
It's also not clear whether the increased metabolic activity and proliferation of the cells seen in this experiment was simply due to LIUS's mechanical and thermal effect in stimulating molecules to move around more.
There are two more interesting case studies: the effect of the wind (air flow); the effect of the internal pressure cumulated with the thermal effect.
