Efficient Estimation of Human Field Exposure Threats for Vehicles with Internal Transmitters at Microwave Frequencies

Simple estimates for the statistical properties of electromagnetic field distributions in vehicles are proposed for assessing human exposure threats for internal sources at microwave frequencies. Illustrations are provided for a range of vehicles including cars, trucks, trains and aircraft. The estimates are based on the power balance method for electrically large cavities, with the additional assumptions that the windows are electrically large and represent the dominant loss mechanism. This approach has been validated against 3D numerical models of a medium sized passenger car. Compared to detailed 3D numerical simulations, these simple estimates require very little geometrical information and insignificant computing resources.
