Electromagnetic Coupling of a Conductor and a Composite Structure by Wire Mesh Modeling 2001-01-2905
The electromagnetic coupling between a conductor and a composite structure by wire-mesh techniques using method of moments is investigated. A three-bladed composite panel with an aluminum tube located above the panel is considered in this analysis. Computations are made of the current on the tube for various frequencies with height above the panel as a parameter. The numerical results compared reasonably well with the measurements. The technique proves to be useful in modeling the composite structures such as wings of an aircraft.
