Solving microwave heating model in a slab using shooting technique

PO Olanrewaju, RO Ayeni, O Adebimpe


We employ shooting technique to explicitly construct the approximate solution of steady state reaction – diffusion equations with source term that arise in modeling microwave heating in an infinite slab with isothermal walls. In particular, we consider the case where the source term decreases spartially and increases with temperature. The important properties of the temperature fields and thermal criticality are discussed.
