This paper deals with the extension of the artificial material single-layer (AMSL) method, recently developed to model electromagnetically a thin conductive material using the finite-element method (FEM), to the more general case of transversally anisotropic shields. The analogy between the field equations and the multiconductor transmission line (MTL) equations is here used to calculate the admittance matrix of a thin anisotropic material. This admittance matrix is then imposed to be that of an equivalent circuit with lumped parameters. Thus, it is possible to synthetize the AMSL tensors containing the specific constants to be used in commercial software tools. The adoption of the AMSL method in FEM simulations avoids a fine discretization inside the thin conductive anisotropic material required at high frequency.

Abstract

This paper deals with the extension of the artificial material single-layer (AMSL) method, recently developed to model electromagnetically a thin conductive material using the finite-element method (FEM), to the more general case of transversally anisotropic shields. The analogy between the field equations and the multiconductor transmission line (MTL) equations is here used to calculate the admittance matrix of a thin anisotropic material. This admittance matrix is then imposed to be that of an equivalent circuit with lumped parameters. Thus, it is possible to synthetize the AMSL tensors containing the specific constants to be used in commercial software tools. The adoption of the AMSL method in FEM simulations avoids a fine discretization inside the thin conductive anisotropic material required at high frequency. Simple tests are finally carried out to validate the proposed method.
