Abstract:

The problem of electrical safety in the vicinity of the Navys proposed Seafarer antenna is studied. The electrostatic solutions for the step potential and earth resistance are derived for a two-layer earth model from which the body current is calculated. It has been found that under certain conditions the maximum body current predicted by a two-layer earth model is greater than that obtained from the uniform earth analysis. Author
