Abstract

This study evaluates the performance of a model of open-cell metal foams generated by sphere functions. To this end, an electromagnetic shield constructed from the model was inserted between two horn antennas in an electromagnetic wave propagation simulation. The foam-hole diameter in the electromagnetic shield model was varied as d = 2.5 and 5.0 mm, and the frequency of the electromagnetic waves was varied from 3 to 13 GHz. In the numerical experiments of shield effectiveness, the shields with foam holes of both diameters attenuated the electromagnetic waves across the studied frequency range. The shield effectiveness was enhanced at low frequencies and in the shield with smaller hole diameter.
