Hi,  Peter;

Skin thickness, the depth of effective current carrying, is greater in 
the non-magnetic stainless alloys.  Skin thickness varies inversely as 
the square root of permeability, resistivity, and frequency.  It is the 
reciprocal of 2 X Pi X [square root of permeability X resistivity X 
frequency], in meters if mks units are used.
