SOFTWARE FOR PROJECT AND ANALYSIS OF FREQUENCY SELECTIVE SURFACES
Keywords:Frequency selective surfaces, equivalent circuit method, interactive computing, simulation software
In this paper, a software for design and analysis of frequency selective surfaces (FSS) based on the equivalent circuit model is presented, with emphasis on teaching students in the interaction between FSS parameters. Tools to design FSSs and a tutorial with theoretical elements of the equivalent circuit method, applied to FSS, compose this software. The software can be used at FSS analysis and design course to consolidate the first theoretical and illustrated concepts.
