Chapter 4

Simplified Models of the Human Body

Abstract

This chapter deals with simplified canonical models of the human body in the frequency and time domains. Frequency domain (FD) analysis involves parallelepiped body model and antenna body models, single straight thick wire body model and multiple wire representation of the body. Time domain (TD) analysis deals with straight thin wire antenna model of the body. FD antenna models are based on the Pocklington integro-differential approach while time domain formulation is based on the Hallén integral equation approach. Finally, transmission line body models in both FD and TD are given.
