TC34 SC2 - SAR evaluation - numerical techniques

The purpose of TC34 Subcommittee 2 is to specify numerical techniques and standardized models of the human anatomy used for determining the peak spatial average SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) in the human body of users for wireless communication devices. SAR is determined by applying computational techniques, like the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD), Finite Integrate Time Domain (FIT), or Finite Element Method (FEM), to compute the field conditions produced by wireless devices in anatomically correct models of the human anatomy or in a computer model of SAM (Specific Anthropomorphic Mannequin). Intended users of these practices will be (but will not be limited to) wireless communication device manufacturers and wireless service providers that are required to certify that their products comply with the applicable SAR limits, and government agencies.
