Finite Element Analysis and Modeling of Tissue Heating while Killing Tumor1:

Following model is an example of tissue heating while killing tumor. This model is created by Interactive Heating Transfer 2.0 Software by Frank P. Incropera and David P. DeWitt. The structure of this model was given as an example in the software and was not created by me that models heat transfer to tissue while killing a tumor.

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
