1. Discussion on the paper of Dr. J. A. Fleming, “On Some Effects of Alternating-Current Flow in Circuits having Capacity and Self Induction,” Journal Institution of Electrical Engineers, London, Vol. XX, May 1891, p. 471. The results are given of about one hundred series of tests, each covering a range in frequency up to about 5000 cycles per second, on the impedance of long loops of parallel conductors of different metals, sizes, and cross-sectional forms. The measuring apparatus is detailed… 
The effect of frequency on the resistance and internal inductance of bare ACSR conductors
An experimental investigation of the effects of varying the frequency on the electrical characteristics of a 54/19 ACSR (aluminum conductor, steel reinforced) conductor is described. Current from a
Analysis of formulas to calculate the AC resistance of different conductors' configurations
Skin-Effect Resistance Measurements of Conductors, at Radio-Frequencies up to 100,000 Cycles per Second
After defining the skin-effect resistance and reactance ratios, the "spirality" and "proximity effects" for conductors at radio-frequencies, a differential bridge circuit supplied with current from

A method is presented for calculating the skin effect resistance ratio of a tube, which is a form of conductor to be recommended for high-frequency work. A formula is also developed by means of which
Skin Effect and Proximity Effect in Polyphase Systems of Rectangular Conductors Calculated on an RC Network
The parameters of polyphase transmission lines consisting of two or three equal parallel rectangular conductors are calculated for low and high frequencies. An analog RC network with about 3300 nodes
A Method of Measuring the Radiofrequency Resistance of Wires
A new and relatively simple method of measuring the resistance of wires at frequencies between about 200 kilocycles and about 40 megacycles is described. By this method, the test specimen is strung
Calculation of the ac to dc resistance ratio of conductive nonmagnetic straight conductors by applying FEM simulations
This paper analyzes the skin and proximity effects in different conductive nonmagnetic straight conductor configurations subjected to applied alternating currents and voltages. These effects have

New experimental data are presented for conductors having ratios of width to thickness of 1 to 1 to 2400 to 1 for frequencies up to eight kilocycles. These data are co-ordinated with existing data
Practical Aspects of the Skin Effect in Low Frequencies in Rectangular Conductors
An analysis of the behavior of the current density distribution over the cross-section of differently combined rectangular conductors subject to power frequency current and the influence of a correlated effect that is the proximity effect shows itself as being predominant, which allow bridging the knowledge gap in this theme.
Effective resistance and reactance of a solid cylindrical conductor placed in a semi-closed slot
The paper is concerned with the investigation of the current distribution over the cross-section of a solid cylindrical conductor lying in a slot with a narrow opening. It is found that the current
