In chapters culled from the popular and critically acclaimed Electromagnetic Compatibility Handbook, Electromagnetic Shielding provides a tightly focused, convenient, and affordable reference for those interested primarily in this subset of topics. In this book, Kenneth L. Kaiser demystifies electromagnetic shielding and explains the source and limitations of the approximations, guidelines, models, and rules-of-thumb used in shielding applications.
Presented in a unique question-and-answer format that gets straight to the heart of each topic, the book includes numerous examples and uses Mathcad to generate all of the figures and many solutions to equations. In many cases, the entire Mathcad program is provided. The author probes such topics as complex permittivity RF and microwaves through human tissue; reflection, absorption, and multiple-reflection losses; electric field shielding including capacitor shielding, shielding cans, and finite-conductivity spherical and cylindrical bodies; magnetic field shielding, and additional important shielding concepts such as laminated shields, laminates for magnetic fields, and surface impedance. Numerous carefully crafted tables are found throughout the book along with abundant equations and references.
