EMP interaction: Principles, techniques and reference data (a compleat concatenation of technology from the EMP interaction notes). EMP interaction 21
Abstract
This work is divided into three parts. The first part, Principles and Techniques, concerns general concepts and calculational procedures from electromagnetic theory relevant to EMP interaction. This contains a discussion of the concept of electromagnetic topology which is used to divide complex systems into somewhat natural smaller parts in an ordered way. This concept is fundamental to the organization and understanding of this work is expected to lead to further insights and computational techniques 28. The reader might consult a recent review paper 9 to put these in perspective including some concepts of potential future significance. The second part, Formulas and Data, considers the information concerning the pieces of the system. The organization of this part is based on the system topology, specifically the hierarchical topology which divides the system into layers. Each layer is further divided into three ordered parts: coupling, propagation, and penetration. Within each category the various individual (or canonical) types of boundaryvalue problems are considered. As one might expect, the bulk of the material is contained in this section. Having considered, first, the general concepts and techniques for EMP interaction and, second, the specific information concerning the pieces, we come to the third part, Systems Applications. This part attempts to illustrate the use of the previous parts in analyzing the EMP interaction with complex systems. Hypothetical system examples are chosen to illustrate the topological decomposition of the problem for selected signal paths, and the subsequent approximate calculation of the internal signals.
