Main Article Content
The aim of this proposal is to demonstrate the ability of tridimensional (3-D) electromagnetic modeling tool for the characterization of composite materials in microwave frequency band range. Indeed, an automated procedure is proposed to generate random materials, proceed to 3-D simulations, and compute shielding effectiveness (SE) statistics with finite integration technique. In this context, 3-D electromagnetic models rely on random locations of conductive inclusions; results are compared with classical electromagnetic mixing theory (EMT) approaches (e.g. Maxwell-Garnett formalism), and dynamic homogenization model (DHM). The article aims to demonstrate the interest of the proposed approach in various domains such as propagation and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).
