Abstract:

A magnetic field boundary condition for use with high altitude phenomenology codes has been developed. The solution of a boundary value problem in the region external to the MHD grid provides a current-free analytical approximation for the magnetic field outside the grid. The applicability of the current-free field as a boundary condition rests on the assumption that electrical currents of significance are contained within the MHD grid. Magnetic field data for a high altitude nuclear burst as computed by the MICE MHD code are presented. Author
