Under some simplifying assumptions, the transient electromagnetic response of a homogeneous conducting infinite cylinder is derived. Two types of primary disturbances, represented by step-function and ramp-function pulses, are considered. Based on the theoretical results, response and decay constant curves are plotted and their utility in time-domain electromagnetic surveys for conductive elongated ore deposits is described.
