Notes and Reports

image-left Electromagnetic Diffusion Model Implementation Notes: Notes on the implementation of the electromagnetic diffusion model in 2D and 3D, used to develop the Electromagnetic Diffusion Model Canonical Test Cases reported in (Flintoft et al., 2017; Flintoft and Dawson, 2017).

image-left Notes on Small Aperture Theory: Some informal notes on the electromagnetic theory of small apertures. The Bethe small aperture theory is widely used in electromagnetic compatibility to estimate the coupling into enclosed spaces.


image-left Human body absorption cross-section datasets: These are the datasets from the paper (Flintoft et al., 2014) as an Excel spreadsheet, containing the average absorption cross-sections of all the subjects. The dataset is in the public domain image-left.
