HEAT TRANSFER PROBLEM FOR THE LASER-INDUCEDHYPERTHERMIA OF SUPERFICIAL TUMORS Leonid A. Dombrovsky ... energy transport in a biological system is usually expressed by the so-called bioheat equation. The bioheat equation developed by ... INDIRECT HEATING STRATEGY IN THERMAL TREATMENT OF TUMORS Leonid A. Dombrovsky ... it is important that it is combined with water to cool the irradiated body surface, where highly sensitive pain receptors ... THE MODIFIED ARRHENIUS EQUATION FOR THE LIVING TISSUES Leonid A. Dombrovsky ... some important transformations in tumorcells take place even at temperatures in the range of 40–42°C, where the cells are not destroyed but some molecular-level damage appears. ... RADIATIVE TRANSFER IN VACUUM THERMAL INSULATION OF SPACE VEHICLES Leonid A. Dombrovsky ... External heating of space vehicles during flight takes place due to direct solar irradiation, solar radiation reflected by planets, and infrared radiation ... RADIATIVE TRANSFER PROBLEMS IN THERMAL PROTECTION OF SPACE VEHICLES Leonid A. Dombrovsky ... When the a space vehicle moves outside the planetary atmosphere, most of the external heat flux to itssurface is associated with thermal radiation. ... SELF-GENERATED CLOUDS OF SMALL PARTICLES FOR SHIELDING OF A SOLAR PROBE FROM INTENSE THERMAL RADIATION Leonid A. Dombrovsky, Dmitry L. Reviznikov ... It is especially important to make observations and measurements at relatively small distances from the Sun. In order for such a mission to be successful, one of the main ...

 

SOLAR HEATING AND MELTING OF SNOWPACKS AND ICE SHEETS IN POLAR REGIONS Leonid A. Dombrovsky ... behavior of massive ice and snowpack under regular summer heating by solar radiation is one of the problems which ... SPECTRAL OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF PURE ICE AND SNOW Leonid A. Dombrovsky, Alexander A. Kokhanovsky ... two spectral optical constants are usually considered as real and imaginary parts of the complex index of refraction ... COMPUTATIONAL MODELS FOR COMBINED HEAT TRANSFER IN SNOW AND ICE Leonid A. Dombrovsky ... the thermal radiation of snow and ice should also be taken into account, but only in the infrared part of the spectrum ... ANALYSIS OF SOLAR HEATING OF A SNOWPACK Leonid A. Dombrovsky, Alexander A. Kokhanovsky ... the main part of solar radiation is reflected from the snowpack because of a strong reflection of the visible radiation ... EFFECT OF SNOW POLLUTION Leonid A. Dombrovsky ... Due to very weak absorption of visible light by pure ice, even very small impurities may affect the absorption of light ... SOLAR HEATING OF ICE CONTAINING BUBBLES Leonid A. Dombrovsky ... The study of the resulting increase in solar heating of ice sheets containing gas bubbles is one of the important tasks of geophysics. ...
