Abstract:

A description of the numerical techniques used to include the self- consistent effect in the two-dimensional ground burst EMP code, SCX, is given. The effect of this phenomenon on the fields predicted by SCX is discussed and illustrated. The effect is most notable for observer positions less than 2,000 meters from the burst point where a sign change occurs in the transverse E field. Also presented are discussion and results concerning the inclusion of a radiation enhanced ground conductivity model in SCX. Results of calculations with this model indicate that for a zero height of burst situation, field effects are minimal.
