Abstract:

Elements of the multiwire parallel array over a ground plane are addressed with a systems-related EMP vulnerability assessment and hardening orientation. An abbreviated computer program supported by experimental data permits a calculation of the degree of interaction of the wires of a parallel array, the individual wire and array impedance to ground, and the relative current distribution among the wires exclusive of wire end loading. This represents the foundation for an inclusive EMP code. Author
