Abstract

In the paper an estimation of penetration depth to human organism of VHF electric field (40.68 MHz) was carried out and the results of calculation of the external factor energy deposition absorbed by various human palm tissues are presented. The object of interest was simulated as a planar plate consisting of six layers, which sizes were determined by actual thickness of irradiated body in accordance with anatomic atlas of cross sections.
