Abstract

In high-rise commercial buildings, the concept of raised floors and metal decking is often adopted for various purposes. Shielding performance of these metal structures, then, is of interest. This paper presents an experimental investigation into shielding properties of raised floors, metal decking as well as large flat sheets applied in buildings. It is recognized that shielding performance actually depends on various parameters, such as shielding material, source orientation, shield thickness, as well as distance from the shield. These factors should be carefully looked at when magnetic shielding is considered to mitigate the background magnetic fields.
