Description

As gamma radiation flux falls on a conductive shell electromagnetic field is induced in the shell cavity. Calculation of the field parameters leads to the second order differential equations with variable coefficients. Asymptotic solutions for electric and magnetic components of induced electromagnetic field for low and high gamma flux dose rates was found in [1]. In [2] a general solution for electric part of electomagnetic field was found using Mathematica. This paper proceeds the electromagnetic field calculations in gas filled cavities. A general solution received with Mathematica for a magnetic component of induced field is discussed. An effect of magnetic field saturation at high dose rate in gas filled shells is found.
