Applying an Impedance Sheet to a Wire or a Face

Apply a surface impedance to a wire or a face bordering free space or dielectric region.

As an example, an impedance sheet is applied to a face. The steps are similar for applying an impedance sheet to a wire.

  1. Define an impedance sheet.
  2. Select the face where you want to apply a surface impedance.
  3. From the right-click context menu, select Properties.
  4. On the Face properties dialog, click the Properties tab.

    Figure 1. The Face properties dialog (Properties tab).
  5. In the Medium drop-down list, select the impedance sheet that you want to apply to the face.
  6. Click the OK to apply the impedance sheet and to close the dialog.
