Download Application of microwave heating for the production of construction materials

Microwave heating has found many applications ranging from the microwave ovens in kitchen to heat food, to a sterilization apparatus for medical treatment, to materials processing in the various fields. In those applications, microwave heating demonstrates significant advantages over conventional methods in reduced processing time and less environmental impacts.

This book is Cited by: Drying structures using high-frequency electromagnetic radiation or microwave technology is currently gaining much more usage in the engineering practice. The goal of the method is the quickest.

This book offers a broad coverage of the theory and practice of industrial microwave heating. It introduces the physical processes behind dipolar and conductivity loss mechanisms and follows with a thorough presentation of dielectric property data of many industrial materials as a function of the moisture content, temperature and frequency, focussing on the interpretation of such data as 5/5(2).

The principles of microwave heating as applied to industrial processing are outlined and the basic design of applicators for material processing is described.

Industrial applications. Microwave heating technology is not new in building and construction applications. In the recent years, the use of industrial microwave heating technology applied to concrete materials has been investigated and developed.

In particular, some researchers demonstrated its effectiveness for rapid curing of concrete (e.g.).Cited by: Microwave heating Microwave heating, which uses electro-magnetic energy in the frequency range MHz, can be used successfully to heat many dielectric materials.

Microwave heating is usually applied at the most popular of the frequencies allowed for ISM (industrial, scientific and medical) applications, namely ( in the UK) and. Microwave processing of materials is a technology that can provide the material processor a new, powerful, and significantly different tool with which to process materials that may not be amenable to conventional means of processing or to improve the performance characteristics of existing materials.

Microwave materials processing is emerging as a novel processing technology which is applicable to a wide variety of materials system including processing of MMC, FRP, alloys, ceramics, metals, powder metallurgy, material joining, coatings, and claddings.

Microwave heating is attractive for heating of foods due to its origin within the material, fast temperature rise, controllable heat deposition, and easy clean-up. The very high frequencies used in microwave heating allow for rapid energy transfers and, thus, high rates of heating.

Microwave heating has been developed as a novel technique for the hydro (solvo)thermal synthesis of organic or inorganic solid-state materials. This book assesses the potential of microwave technology for industrial applications, reviews the latest equipment and processing methods, and identifies both the gaps in understanding of microwave processing technology and the promising development opportunities that take advantage of this new technology's unique performance characteristics.

Melting of glass comprising SiO 2, P 2 O 5, B 2 O 3 as the main building block has been discussed. It has been revealed that silica, a microwave transparent material as reported earlier, can be heated under microwave heating directly.

Application of microwave heating for the production of construction materials book absorption of raw materials and different glass system has been discussed.

There can also be hysteresis losses in certain types of magnetic materials. Applications of Microwave Heating Heating Food. One obvious example of microwave heating is in a microwave oven. When you place food in a microwave oven and press the "start" button, electromagnetic waves oscillate within the oven at a frequency of GHz.

Originally, microwaves were principally used for communication. Inthe use of microwave energy to heat materials was discovered. Now microwave ovens have became common for heating food products in the home. The most prominent characteristic of microwave heating is volumetric heating.

tion and Microwave Heating of Mineral Materials, and Part 2 – Microwave Heating of Organic Materials. The book is divided into 31 chapters, some of which are concentrated in Part 1 – de-voted to mineral materials (Chapters ), while those in Part 2 are focused on organic origin (Chapters ).

Conventional heating heats materials via radiation and conduction while microwave heating is a volumetric process. Microwave power can also be delivered in different manners i.e.

time sliced or variable power. These concepts and others such as susceptors and resistance heating. So far, there are no applications for microwave heating in the production of CFRP structures. As the process chain for CFRP materials contains a lot of thermal steps, the integration of microwave heating would be an advantage over conventional technologies.

Microwave heating has varied uses in the production of various materials. For processes involving heating or drying, of which there are many, microwave energy increasingly acts as a substitute for more traditional ovens fired by oil or gas. Industrial microwave systems are widely used by structural LVL lumber processing.

Abstract. Attempts to use microwaves in materials processing are very old and are comparable to those of microwave heating of food. This chapter discusses the characteristics and advantages of the microwave processing of ceramics and rapid sintering of ceramics and introduces the sintering of inorganic materials with new structures through selective heating by microwaves.

conventional heating. In volumetric heating the materials can absorb microwave energy directly and internally and convert it to heat (Scott jones, ).

It is this characteristic that leads to advantages using microwaves to process materials. Microwave oven uses electromagnetic waves called micro-waves to heat.

Abstract: In microwave heating applications, the energy is introduced directly into the volume of the material and as consequence the quality of the process is highly dependent on the uniformity of the electromagnetic field distribution along it.

That is, the non uniformity of the heating is a potential problem with serious consequences. A microwave oven (commonly referred to as a microwave) is an electric oven that heats and cooks food by exposing it to electromagnetic radiation in the microwave frequency range.

This induces polar molecules in the food to rotate and produce thermal energy in a process known as dielectric ave ovens heat foods quickly and efficiently because excitation is fairly uniform in the.
