A numerical method, based on surface-charge integral equations, has been developed to quantify the interaction of ELF-LF electric fields with a human body that has a realistic shape and arbitrary posture and is situated in a realistic environment. The induced electric fields at the body surface and inside the body, the induced body current, and effects of the grounding impedance can be accurately quantified by the present method. The agreement between the method and various existing experimental data is very good.
