The computation required to simulate surface nuclear magnetic resonance (SNMR) data increases proportionally with the number of sequences and number of pulses in each sequence. This poses a particular challenge to modelling steady-state SNMR, where suites of sequences are acquired, each of which require modelling 10–100 s of pulses. To model such data efficiently, we have developed a reformulation of surface NMR forward model, where the geometry of transmit and receive fields are encapsulated into a vector (or set of vectors), which we call B1-volume-receive (BVR) curves. Projecting BVR curve(s) along complimentary magnetization solutions for a particular sequence amounts to computing the full SNMR forward model. The formulation has the additional advantage that computations for increased transmitter current amounts to a relative translation between the BVR and magnetization solutions. We generate 1-D kernels using BVR curves and standard integration techniques and find the difference is within 2 per cent. Using BVR curves, a typical suite of steady-state kernels can be computed two orders of magnitude faster than previous approaches.
