QuickField for Electromagnetic Shielding Applications

Dr. James Claycomb who recently spoke about biophysical simulations, will continue his series of presentations by this new webinar about electromagnetic shielding applications using QuickField software.

The use of QuickField for shielding low frequency AC, static, and electromagnetic noise sources will be modeled. Examples include power line (50 or 60 Hz and harmonics), the geomagnetic field and its variations, lightning, stray fields from electric motors, and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) resulting from nuclear detonation. The shielding properties of various conducting, permeable and superconducting material combinations will be demonstrated.
