Abstract: The radiative electromagnetic field is generated during the experiments with a radiation and is of importance for spacecrafts under sun radiation and for the radio-electronic equipment of the nuclear reactor control systems. The paper presents the developed methods of modelling the multistage process of the radiative electromagnetic field excitation. The methods are based on both deterministic technique of solving the time-dependent self-consistent problems for the Maxwell equations and statistical algorithms for modelling the ionising radiation transport in dense materials.

Keywords: ionising radiation; electron flux; secondary electrons; statistical modelling; Monte Carlo method; self-consistent electromagnetic field; particles method; difference scheme; parallel code; radiative electromagnetic field; spacecraft; sun radiation; radio-electronic equipment; nuclear reactor control.
