The purpose of this paper is to discuss the characterization of materials that mimic the electromagnetic characteristics of the human body from low frequencies to 10 MHz and over a temperature range of 15 C. to 40 C. The materials studied were: 1) a mixture of potassium chloride in water, 2) a mixture of propylene carbonate, ethylene carbonate, and salts, 3) a semi-solid material consisting of silicone and carbon black, 4) a mixture of glycine, carrageenan, potassium chloride and water. It was found that to obtain time stability, the carbon black mixture must be temperature annealed. the silicone material has the advantage of being more rugged than the glycine mixture. The glycine material was jello-like in consistency and required refrigeration.
