Abstract:

Advanced composite materials are used extensively for commercial and military aircraft applications. This paper reviews numerous approaches and theories used for evaluating electromagnetic transmission through a variety of composite materials classes. The types of composite materials discussed are 1 graphiteepoxy composites 2 chiral composites 3 omega particulate composites 4 quasioptic composites and 50 dielectric composites. Due to the availability of open literature references, the primary focus is constrained of the first two classes graphiteepoxy and chiral composites. Topics discussed include AC circuit simulation programs, phase-correction modeling, and wave propagation theory.
