Abstract:

Research objectives and accomplishments under AFOSR Grant 76-2980 are described. These include studies of plane electromagnetic wave interactions with planar sheets, circular cylindrical shells, and spherical shells of advanced composite materials and a study of the effects of transient current injection into a planar sheet ofadvanced composite material. The effects of anisotropy of composite laminates on their electromagnetic characterization and interactions are also discussed. The frequency range over which the electromagnetic characterizations and interaction analyses are valid is that characteristic of the nuclear electromagnetic pulse. Author
