Abstract

Root-mean-square for the human exposure to a transient radiation D. Poljak Department of Electronics, University of Split, Croatia Abstract A root-mean-square (rms) measure of the human body exposed to the tranisent radiation is presented in the paper. The mathematical model is based on the cylindrical representation of the human body and related space-time Hallen integral equation. The Hallen integral equation is solved via space-time Galerkin-Bubnov boundary element procedure and the equivalent space time current distribution along the body is obtained. Knowing the transient current distribution flowing through the human body it is possible to calculate a rrns measure of the transient response. Some illustrative numerical results are presented. 1 Introduction The exposure of humans to transient electromagnetic fields results in induced transient currents and fields inside the body. The knowing of the transient current induced inside the human body is the key to understanding the interaction
