Abstract : Simple analytic models incorporating assumptions based on physical arguments are developed to calculate the electrostatic fields produced inside cylinders and spheres by internal electromagnetic pulses. Integral equations for the potentials in the cavities are derived from Poisson's equation and energy conservation and are solved self-consistently for a representative energy spectrum. The numerical solutions are checked against analytic solutions in the limit of small space-charge effects and numerical results for the electrostatic potential, electric field, and charge density are presented.
