Numerical simulation of electromagnetic coupling effects of a full-scale human body model on a circular loop antenna with arbitrary orientation is presented. Coupled integral equations (CIE), which consist of a Pocklington-type integral equation and a 3-D volume electric field integral equation (EFIE) with mutual coupling terms, are developed for the loop antenna current and induced electric field inside the body. The coupled integral equations are solved numerically by the method of moments (MoM). Numerical results of the loop antenna radiation characteristics at 280 MHz in free space and proximate to the body are discussed.
