Abstract
The existing theory for the quasi-static absorption rate of a lossy dielectric ellipsoid in E-polarization is extended to include cylinders of finite length. The key variable affecting the normalized specific absorption rate (NSAR) of an ellipsoid, prolate spheroid, or cylinder, is shown to be the axial ratio, R=(length/diameter). Very simple formulas are deduced for the NSAR of a prolate spheroid or cylinder with R>6. The quasi-static calculations are confirmed by measurements of the NSAR of a human-sized ellipsoid, prolate spheroid, and cylinder exposed inside a very large TEM cell.
