Abstract

Electromagnetic fields emissions have to be properly considered during exposure level assessments, especially within all the environments where they assume a very complex shape and specific features. Such electromagnetic areas may exist inside rolling stock. Even if they can be treated by general standards such as those issued by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), by the European Council and by the Italian State, a recent ICNIRP publication suggests processing these kinds of radiations more effectively. Through the present work, this concept has been applied to the exposure level assessment inside rolling stock. Different feasible implementations are compared, error analyses have been performed and practical hints are given. In addition, some results – pertaining to real measurements
