Abstract : This report describes the results of a program to evaluate methods of measuring the impedance of commonly used bonds. The ultimate goal of this effort is to provide a means to evaluate the performance of electrical bonds in an RFenvironment, in order to aid in the design of avionics equipment and structures to prevent RFI, and to detect the source of existing RFI problems. The program consisted of (1) a literature survey to determine if previous efforts in this field had produced significant or useful results, (2) experimental evaluation of a number of possible techniques, (3) theoretical support for these techniques when practical, and (4) fabrication of an engineering model to demonstrate one of the most applicable techniques.
