Abstract:

The interaction of radiofrequency RF and microwave MW electromagnetic radiation with biological tissues is of increasing importance from the standpoint of health and safety. From considerable literature devoted to the study of RF and MW bioeffects based primarily on animal experimentation it has been determined that bioeffects are correlated with mass-normalized rates of RF or MW energy absorption specific absorption rates or SARs. An emphasis of our project was to improve the efficiency of the SAR algorithms and to extend their use to higher RF and MW frequencies. Another objective was to adapt these algorithms to computing workstations and distributed memory parallel processors that are becoming more affordable and hence readily available to potential users of these codes.
