Abstract : This report investigates the use of energy bounds to estimate: the amount of energy that can be transmitted through an aperture when exposed to an EM pulse; the fields inside a cavity with one or more apertures; and the coupling of energy that can be coupled from a damped -sine wave, a rectangular RF pulse and an inverse-exponential pulse. It is shown that the use of energy bounds is a useful approach to the estimation of interior fields and coupling to systems inside a structure with apertures. This approach has potential for simplifying the hardening of electronic systems.
