Schematic illustration of a heating cube studies for the temperature/equivalent thermal dose at distributions.
The comparison of the temperature profiles at the center of the heating cube between the present numerical solution and the exact solution (See Ref. 27) for three heating schemes and with the blood perfusion rate . The solid and dashed lines represented the exact solution (See Ref. 27) and the present numerical solution, respectively. (a) Case I; (b) case II; and (c) case III.
Effects of three different thermal relaxation times on the transient temperature and thermal dose profiles at the central point within a heated cube for and the heating case II in Table II. The solid lines represent the PBHTE (i.e., ) and the dashed or dotted lines represent the WBHTE (i.e., and ).
