Maximum temperature and temperature change by type of module

Maximum temperature

Depth Module 1 Module 2 Module 3 p value Post hoc Bonferroni test for multiple comparisons

0 mm 110.12±5.62 54.59±0.58 50.03±1.47 0.0001 Module 1≠2 1≠3
0.2 mm 71.29±2.51 40.59±1.21 39.40±0.86 0.0005 Module 1≠2 1≠3

Change of temperature (max-base)

0 mm 78.78±5.67 23.00±0.87 18.20±1.26 0.0001 Module 1≠2 1≠3
0.2 mm 40.15±2.28 9.59±1.12 8.58±0.64 0.0006 Module 1≠2 1≠3

All data are presented as mean±standard deviation. The temperature change is the maximum temperature - the base temperature. The unit of temperature is ℃.

Statistical comparisons between values from each module were performed using Kruskal-Wallis test. It was followed by Bonferroni tests.
