Abstract : Electromagnetic shielding of large volumes is possible with structures fabricated from low-resistance, high-permeability materials. Structural non-uniformities, such as doors, power and signal entry ports, and air conditioning ducts tend to degrade shielding effectiveness. These and a number of other construction details must be properly handled to avoid excessive shielding degradation. These details are discussed in this report. An annotated bibliography of publications on the subject of electromagnetic shielding is included. (Author)
