The physical processes of HF loss are discussed. Two cases in transient analysis for coaxial cables are presented; the first considers skin effect in plated conductors while the second is an analysis based upon an attenuation approximation of the form (frequency) , . A graphical transient analysis technique is described which allows one to easily analyze cables whose losses are due to a combination of physical processes. Generalized curves based upon the (frequency) approximation are presented by which the transient response of a cable can be rapidly evaluated for purposes of engineering design.
