In this book, original and comprehensive studies discuss shielding effectiveness as related to conductivity, and the relationship of material chemistry to conductivity and corrosion are demonstrated. It is explained how to optimize shielding effectiveness for aircraft and other vehicles. Electrically conductive corrosion prevention materials capable of maintaining EMI/EMP protection of aircraft and weapon systems are identified.
