Abstract : This report describes a study to determine the feasibility of arc spraying metal onto a room-sized structure to provide economical electromagnetic shielding. The study concluded that shielding can be significantly upgraded by arc spraying over the seams of existing modular shielded construction. Structural shielding can also be supplied by arc spraying metal onto standard construction materials. (Author)
