How to simulate skin effect in transient analysis?

    in most spice versions it is not a problem to simulate the skin effect
    (maybe of an inductor) for AC analysis as there is often the variable
    "freq" and you can assign a series resistor (in series to the
    inductor...) the value "skin*squareroot(freq)".
    But in transient analysis there is no variable freq. How can one
    simulate a frequency dependent resistor there?

    You have to make up a multi-lump model. I have a simplified wirebond
    model good up to a few GHz. I can post it if you are interested.

    I would be very glad if you could post it.
