Engineers' Handbook of Industrial Microwave Heating
DescriptionScope: Of all the processes used in manufacturing industry, there can be little doubt that heating is the most commonplace. Presenting industrial microwave heating from an engineering base and integrating the essential elements of microwave theory and heat transfer with practical design, application and operational issues, this book is a comprehensive guide for readers working at a technical grade or above, or those moving into this field, who may not have a research physics background and require a clear, authoritative treatment of the subject.
