Special Materials

Synthetic materials like composites are used increasingly in product design.

In some cases the material is chosen intentionally to influence how the structure interacts with an incident electromagnetic (EM) field. It is therefore important that these materials can be modelled accurately. Feko offers a range of different features that consider these special materials.

Key features:
  • Efficient solution methods for periodic structures like frequency selective surfaces (FSS).
  • Meta-materials, composites (for example, carbon fiber), metals, dispersive and anisotropic dielectrics.
  • Special approximations for coatings and thin dielectric sheets.
