Abstract

Operation of office, video and audio equipment generates electromagnetic fields. Many employees who use computers for a long time complain of headaches and other health troubles. This has become a serious problem as electromagnetic fields are invisible and intangible and an employee, therefore, is unaware of how to protect oneself from them. This work involves modelling of the strengths of computer-generated electric and magnetic fields in the frequency ranges 5 Hz - 2 kHz and 2 kHz - 400 kHz in a computer classroom. After measuring the initial parameters of an electric and a magnetic field, electromagnetic fields propagating in the classroom were modelled with the help of the software VIZIMAG. Propagation and directions of electromagnetic field isolines are also presented. The modelling software VIZIMAG allows us to identify the strength of electric field or the frequency of magnetic field as well as the area of a room where they are present. Separate models are designed for both electric strength and magnetic flux density. Ill. 9, bibl. 11, tabl. 1 (in English; abstracts in English and Lithuanian).
