Induced electric currents in models of man, rat and mouse from 60 Hz magnetic fields are computed using the impedance method. The models all have realistic shapes, and in the case of rodents, a homogeneous average tissue conductivity is assumed. The model of man is analyzed for two cases, a homogeneous average tissue conductivity and a heterogeneous model, both consisting of 1.3 cm cubical tissue cells whose conductivities are representative of the tissue within the cube. The results for various models and species, as well as different orientations of the magnetic field, are compared. The data presented are useful as the first step in dosimetry for 60 Hz magnetic fields, and for interspecies scaling of biological interactions related to the tissue induced electric currents.
