Title

Design of Homogeneous and Composite Materials from Shielding Effectiveness Specifications

Abstract

A procedure to synthesize a suitable biphasic composite material from the given Shielding effectiveness (SE) specifications is proposed herein. In particular, this paper presents an analytic approach for calculating parameters of a Debye-like equivalent homogeneous material, which meets the SE requirements in given frequency range. Establishing the relationship of the SE with the intrinsic material and morphological properties of a composite will make it possible to effectively find an equivalent homogeneous lossy Debye-like material model, starting from the given SE frequency characteristic. The Maxwell Garnett mixing rule is used to synthesize a composite made by aligned cylindrical inclusions. A few examples of how this procedure works are presented; validation by time domain numerical simulations is provided.
