Abstract

More and more people ask questions on eventual influence of electric and magnetic fields. Therefore, accurate numerical prediction methods for geometrically difficult configurations are important to compare with measured values. In this way standards can be checked during design. For magnetic fields the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA) proposes the limiting values as shown in table 1.
