FEM mesh size when a finite conductivity is introduced

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I have a small doubt regarding the mesh size of the FEM solver when the material inside a 3D body (for RCS consideration) is characterized with some finite conductivity. I can see the standard mesh default for FEM is around `\lambda/10` but with a conductivity of 10 inside a material (`\epislon_r = 1`), the mesh size for standard meshing is around `\lambda/145`. Does it change when the skin depth changes? I have attached my cfx here.

Feko will mesh the FEM tets according to the wavelength inside the medium, so definitely defining a conductivity will reduce the mesh size.

Thanks for the insight. 

 

Does it have a rule for the standard mesh? Like how much it is going to reduce based on wavelength inside the medium and conductivity?
