Abstract:

A methodology is proposed which aims at providing simple, rapid, and cost-effective estimates of the magnitude of electromagnetic fields in a shipboard environment. In this technical report the method is illustrated by an example involving scattering of plane wave radiation incident at right angles or obliquely on a circular cylinder. It is recommended that the method be developed more fully and applied as first cull in problems of shipboard siting, HERO-, RADHAZ-, EMC-, and operational problems. The relatively small regions of the field requiring better accuracy are then treated in a second cull by the methods developed or under development by the academic community. This procedure promises considerable improvements in cost effectiveness.
