To study the dynamic response of granite to different levels of microwave power, an intelligent microwave rock-breaking instrument is used to irradiate different power from three directions. The servo universal testing machine is used to carry out a uniaxial compression test on the granite after microwave damage to analyze the strength damage characteristics and the degree of pore damage. Pore fractal characteristics are analyzed based on nuclear magnetic resonance to establish the microwave damage degradation model. In parallel, the energy evolution process of granite under the influence of various power levels is analyzed using the theory of energy dissipation. Simultaneously, based on the energy dissipation theory, we analyze the energy evolution process of granite under the action of different powers. The results show that with higher microwave power, the peak strength and modulus of elasticity show a linear decreasing law. The degree of fragmentation is more obvious, showing the damage characteristics with two big ends and little in the middle. The higher the power, the greater the porosity and the more sensitive the micropore becomes to microwaves. Additionally, the damage degradation model established to evaluate the microwave damage of the rock showed that it was feasible. The higher the power, the lower the total energy, elastic energy, and dissipation energy, and the granite is gradually transformed from elastic deformation to plastic deformation. The elastic energy ratio decreases, the dissipation energy ratio increases, and the degree of damage becomes more and more serious. This study provides theoretical support for exploring the mechanical behavior and mechanism of microwave-assisted rock breaking and is of great practical significance.
