FEKO: Electromagnetic Environmental Effects on Aircraft with Composite Materials

Carbon fiber reinforced composite (CFRC) materials are used often in the construction of small aircraft, since they offer sufficient mechanical strength while being lighter than metal. They are electrically conducting, but provide less shielding than metal and therefore electromagnetic environmental effects become a concern. This application sheet quantifies the effects for a couple of practical examples.
