Research Abstract - Investigate adaptation of ADI-FDTD code and Impedance code currently available at North Carolina State University to modeling human electromuscular incapacitation (HEMI) exposures. In consultation with the HEMI staff at NHRC-DET, decide which code would best suit the needs of the HEMI project and adapt that code for use in simulating a variety of HEMI waveforms in the high resolution man, goat and swine models. The anatomical models would be provided by NHRC-DET. Adapt the selected code to meet the input and output requirements of the HEMI project as defined in conjunction with the other HEMI investigators at Brooks City-Base. The goal is to develop a code capable of running these high-resolution anatomical models with reasonable turnaround times.
