Shielding is a major means of EMI control at all levels of EMC. This chapter presents shielding theory, shielding materials, and some mathematical models of shielding effectiveness. The performance of shields is a function of whether the source appears as an electric or magnetic field in the near-in induction region or an electromagnetic field in the far-field region.
