Abstract:

A description of the physics and numerical methods used in two- dimensional ground burst electromagnetic pulse calculations is given. In particular the SCX code, one of two computer codes which performs such calculations, is described. The source terms, air chemistry, and boundary conditions are also discussed. Multipole expansion techniques for outer boundary conditions are described in detail. Comparisons between the SCX code and the LEMP1 code are presented. Instructions for running SCX are contained in Appendix III.
