Tutorial RadioFrequency (RF) heating

This folder contains several input decks that aim to showcase some Radiofrequency (RF) heating examples. In the context of the EM solver, radiofrequency heating can be viewed as an extension of the traditional Resistive heating solver. Contrary to resistive heating, the material’s electrical conductivity is usually very low, or the material can be an insulator, but the input source is in a high frequency range (GHz or higher) which triggers molecular displacements that generate heat via friction. This dielectric heat source term becomes the dominant factor rather than the Ohmic losses term. Some of the features are only available for LS-DYNA R15 branch or in recent Development versions so make sure to have the correct executable installed.
