Self-Consistent Atmospheric EMP Coupling in Three Dimensions


This article describes a three-dimensional, finite-difference solution and program for self-consistent treatment of Maxwell's equations in air in the presence of an ionizing radiation pulse. The solution is based on polar coordinates, and gives the surface current density on a conducting body. Ionizing radiation generates primary Compton electrons, which in… (More)
