Abstract. A plane rectangular bar of conducting and permeable material is placed in an external low-frequency magnetic field. The shielding properties of this object are investigated by solving the given plane eddy current problem for the vector potential with the boundary integral equation method. The vector potential inside the rectangle is governed by Helmholtz' equation, which in our case is solved by separation. The solution is inserted into the remaining boundary integral equation for the exterior vector potential in the domain surrounding the bar. By expressing its logarithmic kernel as a Fourier integral the overall solution inside and outside the bar is calculated using analytical means only.
