dc.description.abstract South Africa has an immensely rich reserve of minerals which still has to be exploited. The problem with these reserves is that they exist in reefs where the mining environment is extremely hazardous, and where mining is very expensive. These are only two of the reasons why borehole radar has recently become a very important field of research in the South African mining industry. These radars have to operate in rock, which has a number of electromagnetically problematic characteristics, which greatly complicate modelling and design of suitable radars. The goal of this project is to demonstrate how the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) method may be used to electromagnetically model and simulate borehole radars and subterranean environments. en_ZA
